16705 raptors at the Strait of Messina

After a long time a new post to report the results of the observations that we carried out last spring on the continental side of the Strait of Messina. We counted 16705 individuals and 15 species of raptors from a single watchpoint between the 8th of April and the 20th of May. As expected most of them were Honey Buzzards. Next appointment in August when there will be held the new fieldwork together with our friends of Ornis Italica.
