MEDRAPTORS Observation Camp 2011

During the Camp on the Calabrian Appennines we have found a new watchpoint to monitor the migration of raptors along the chain mountain of southern Italy. The area is located in the northern part of Aspromonte close to the border of Serre Mountains. Interesting numbers of Honey Buzzards have been recorded. Moreover we observed the following species of migrating raptors: Black kite, Marsh Harrier, Montagu's Harrier, Hobby, Eleonora's falcon, Kestrel. Among resident raptors the Goshawk, the Honey Buzzard and the Bonelli's Eagle. Further investigations are needed to quantify the migratory flow at the site.
