Sicily, January 2010

Our friends from Ragusa, Sicily, sent us a picture made during our fieldwork in January. We made more than one thousand km of line transects in the whole island and we observed hundreds of wintering raptors mostly kestrels and common buzzards but also marsh and hen harriers, sparrowhawks, peregrine falcons, booted eagles, black kites and lesser kestrels. We wish to thank all the people who supported us during the research in particular LIPU (BirdLife Italy) of Alcamo and Gela, the Natutal Reserve of Gela Lake (Biviere), Antonino Provenza, Paolo Amato, Emilio Giudice, Peppe Campo, Antonino Duchi and Renzo Ientile.
