Raptor migration - Aspromonte Mountain - Autumn 2014

Between the 11th of August and the end of September we observed the passage of raptors together with our friends of Ornis Italica on the Aspromonte mountain. From a single watchpoint we counted 11484 raptors moving southward. Among them several Honey Buzzards, Black Kites and Marsh Harriers. Among the rare species we underline the passage of four individuals of Egyptian vultures with two fresh juveniles. Unfortunately some poaching activity was recorded during raining days when raptors flew at lower altitudes on the ground.
