The breeding season is closed in the end (more or less) for the European raptors and in the next weeks they will start again to move across the Central Mediterranean area. Therefore we are close to start a new fieldwork on the Aspromonte mountain together with our colleagues of Ornis Italica. In that area last year were counted about 30000 thousand raptors, mostly Honey Buzzards, Black Kites and Marsh Harriers. Raptors migrate following the ridge of the Apennines heading toward Sicily and flying over the forest and the plain of the Aspromonte before crossing the Strait of Messina.
