News from the Strait of Messina

Today was a beautiful migration day here at the Strait of Messina. We counted more than 1000 migrating raptors, most of them were Honey Buzzards but we observed 10 different species of raptors and in particular dozens of Red-footed Falcons. White and Black Storks, Bee-eaters migrated at the site. Also the two nights before were very good for bird migration and we detected thousands passerines with our radars. In the picture below a screenshot of birds tracked by the radar.
