The Mijas fire service were called to a restaurant in La Cala, where an unexpected guest had it made itself at home.  A Griffon vulture was spotted on the roof, and the bomberos were called in to help.  The vulture may have been injured or debilitated, as they would not normally stop in populated areas.

The firemen were able to capture the vulture with a net.  It was then taken to a specialist centre in Malaga for treatment before being released back into the wild.  You can see a video of the rescue here:
