News from Bosphorus 5

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.
