Griffon vulture above the sea

Griffon vultures (and vultures in general) don't fly much above water as they are carrion eaters and that's found on land. The one in the photo is effectively flying alongside a cliff with the sea below (by Sweet Water Beach in Sfakia). The cliffs in this part of the island (essentially between Agia Roumeli and Ilingas near Hora Sfakion) are quite tall and there are a few vulture nesting in them.
