Return of the Egyptian vulture

By Tomos Williams

 

Th Egyptian vulture may be the most threatened bird in Greece. It has fallen victim to poison traps and poaching and is now on the IUCN Red List as “Endangered”.

The “The Return of the Neophron” project which aims to prevent extinction of the Egyptian vulture in Bulgaria and Greece has been using Ltl Acorn cameras to collect data on the return of this beautiful bird.

After getting in touch with NatureSpy to buy the cameras, they kindly shared their pictures with us!

We can’t blame this vulture for wanting to spread it’s wings after the 4000km round trip to its African feeding sites.

This vulture soars above the Greek countryside, maybe to find one of the feeding stations the “The Return of the Neophron” team use to support the population.

This vulture may be searching for a good spot to nest over the summer months before returning to Africa over the winter.

Thanks to Victoria Saravia and all of the “The Return of the Neophron” team for sharing the photos with us – good luck!
