The NABU Armenia team with our hero! Photo: NABU ArmeniaWe are extremely proud to inform that this year it was finally possible to fit with our logger a Bearded vulture Gypaetus barbatus. It all took place in Armenia within a scientific project conducted by the NABU Armenia team. This very small (as the picture shows) lifeform successfully left the nest and is soaring over mountain tops of Armenia, Iran and Iraq.

His migration can be followed on the map on the home page of our portal. This year we also included data from Egyptian vultures Neophron percnopterus.

GSE Henryk from the Polish Biebrza population.The results of long-year studies on the European population of the Greater Spotted Eagles Aquila clanga were recently published. This time the aim was to reseach the migration strategies. Aquila dataloggers were used within the studies.

The publication can be viewed here.

Golden Eagle named Tonička and Bartosovice Rehab Centre worker Petr Orel moments before the release in 2018. Photo: Bartosovice Rehabilitation Centre.Today a story of the kind of fairy tale, or maybe a "happy end horror". For many years Czech Republic has implemented a reintroduction program for the Golden Eagle. In 2011 a young female was released within the project. Unfortunatelly she could enjoy the freedom for a coupleof years only. And again the reason was a hunter.
