News from the Strait of Messina

The weekend was a very good time to observe raptors migrating at the Strait. About one thousand individuals were counted from our main watchpoint. They were mostly Honey Buzzards but we observed also Booted Eagles, Osprey, one Short-toed Eagle (here below a picture of that bird) and some Montagu's Harriers. Black Kites and Marsh Harriers were quite commons. Among non raptor birds, saturday was a great day for Bee eaters with 580 individuals counted. Moreover 2 Black Storks, 2 rollers and one Great White Egret were observed.
