Egyptian vultures at the Strait of Messina!

Yesterday it was an astonishing migration day at the Strait of Messina. We counted more than 2600 raptors and 3 beautiful Egyptian vultures! This species is now so rare in the Italian peninsula that not every year we observe it at the Strait, while this spring we already counted 6 individiduals.
Here below a picture of two individuals observed yesterday at our station.
