News from the Aspromonte mountain

Today hundreds of raptors were observed moving over the Aspromonte under intermittant light rain showers. Some Honey Buzzards were forced to ground and had to endure the worst of the weather before continuing on their migration (see the pictures attached). Their migration speed was much slower and resulted in several parties of birds deciding to roost at the site before nightfall, as was the case for a flock of Black Kites pictured below and of the Honey Buzzard in the amazing picture taken by Jack Ashton-Booth.
