I travelled by ferry and train and train and ferry from Newcastle to Malta.
I arrived in Valletta a day before Raptorcamp began.
I drew landmarks each time we went out in teams to look for the birds being shot.
I decided to have an adventure, and left Birdlife for the night to go sleep rough, and greet the first sun of the equinox.
The south temple at Mnajdra is perfectly aligned with the sun at equinox, and also at solstice. I was privileged to see it beam over the hill, through the temple's entrance and to the altar.
But the experience was ruined by arseholes like this one shooting in and around the temple complexes.
