Like in Marettimo, also here in Turkey we took pictures of an adult and a juvenile Egyptian Vultures migrating together.
In Autumn 1966 Porter and Willis counted 367 Egyptian Vultures but now the individuals observed migrating through the Bosphorus are much less. This is a signal of a dramatic decline of this species in Europe.
MEDRAPTORS is a No-profit Association of ornithologists and birdwatchers, that has been working for several years in the Central Mediterranean area and more recently also in the East Mediterranean.
We work to improve researches and protection of migrating birds of prey through specific projects and observation camps.
MEDRAPTORS is an Association ready to receive anyone else contribution and we ‘d like to cooperate with other NGOs, associations, University and others researcher teams.
