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.

 

Some news about ST Eagles from Italy

Apr 26, 2014 / Comment

For the first time tracked 2nd CY Short-toed Eagle has returned to Europe from Africa. This is Egidio which was fitted with a satellite transmitter in Regional Park Gallipoli Cognato /map/ in 2013. European observers have a good chance to see the bird in the nature. As Ugo Mellone said, it would be great to observe the behaviour of this young Short-toed Eagle in the field and his interactions with breeding pairs.

Thanks to Ugo for kindly informing us!

April 2014, photo by Corrado De Francesco : one Short-toed Eagle maybe has a transmitter on its backThis photo has been taken by Corrado De Francesco in south-eastern Piedmont /map/ on April 12th. The author observed three ST Eagles and one of them had something reminding a transmitter or other similar equipment on its back. If anybody knows what it could really be or who could be the owner of the device, please, inform us:
