Some news about the migration of ST Eagles in the Italian Peninsula.

They all are dedicated to observations of migratory birds of prey in the Apuan Alps /map/ during several consecutive seasons, including records of numerous Short-toed Eagles:

This spring Egidio arrived in his birthplace again. This is a young male Short-toed Eagle fitted with a satellite transmitter in Regional Park Gallipoli Cognato /map/ in 2013 within the project which had been started with participation of Ugo Mellone yet in 2010 and later continued by Giuseppe Lucia.

The satellite tracking project continues in Southern Italy this year. Three juvenile Short-toed Eagles were tagged with transmitters in Regional Park Gallipoli Cognato /map/. The project is managed by Giuseppe Lucia and Ugo Mellone (University of Alicante). Maps with the tracks are available on the Regional Park Gallipoli Cognato website.
