Askar Isabekov has merged data from different birdwatching websites on the Birds of Northern Eurasia portal. This database allows to monitor appearing new pictures and observations of various bird species in several countries of Northern Eurasia, including Short-toed Eagles. At least 3 out of currently 12 regional sites were mentioned on HoverOverUs before.

The total scale of collected data in the journal of the ST Eagle national monitoring program in France is amazing and deserves special attention (Fr):
• Cahier de la surveillance 2017. Circaète Jean-le-Blanc Circaetus gallicus [Journal of the Short-toed Eagle monitoring in 2017] // short-toed-eagle.net.
Thanks a lot to Renaud Nadal for sharing that remarkable review!

A lot of information about observations and data on the current state of Short-toed Eagle population in the Isère Department /map/ are available on the LPO Mission rapaces and Faune Isère sites. Foremost, the following article by Françoise Chevalier deserves a particular attention:
• Françoise CHEVALIER, 2014 – Quatorze ans de recherche et de suivi des couples de circaète Jean-le-Blanc Circaetus gallicus dans le sud-est du département de l’Isère [Fourteen years of research and monitoring of Short-toed Eagle in the southeast of the Isère Department] // Le Bièvre, tome 26: pp. 26-33. – (Fr).

• Lionel Maumary, 2015 – Nouvelle nidification du Circaète Jean-le-Blanc en Valais [New nesting of Short-toed Eagle in Valais] // Oiseaux.ch (Fr).
The following web resource deserves to be mentioned again: the map of the sighting locations is available for the registered contributors of Ornitho.ch only. However, any visitor of the site can view the photo gallery. The most of the pictures of Short-toed Eagles represented there have been taken in Switzerland.
The new birding database has been created this year for collecting pictures, geographical locations and other data of observations from Ukrainian birdwatchers. Among information on other species, it contains details of new records of Short-toed Eagles in various regions of Ukraine. The site has been made by Askar Isabekov and Andrew Simon as an analog of the well-known project for Kazakhstan that has already existed for 10 years. One more similar website is dedicated to Siberian birds. There is not any record of Short-toed Eagle on the last one yet; nevertheless, even isolated observations made at the edge of the species range would be of the great interest for ST Eagle researchers.
