HONEY BUZZARD TRACKING PROJECT
In order to evaluate which factors shape the migration routes followed by adult honey buzzards, MEDRAPTORS is promoting and funding the tagging of new individuals in Hungary. The field work is led by our colleague Eniko Anna Tamas. Two individuals have been tagged in the last days, and the work is still ongoing.
It will be possible to follow the movements of these birds on a dedicated page of our website.
Preliminary results of this research show a loop migration pattern that confirms the seasonal variation of field counts carried out in Italy and Spain during autumn and spring.
