Short-toed Eagle (CIRCAETUS GALLICUS) / by KING R. 2008

Date: 30th April 2008
Time: 18:50
Species: Short-toed Eagle
Location: Jews Gate Bird Observatory, Gibraltar
Rings: Two colour rings on left leg, Green over Red

Details: The bird was migrating north, seen arriving over the Straits of Gibraltar from Africa, then being mobbed by the resident pair of Ravens and many Yellow-legged Gulls. The bird passed low overhead before continuing northwards into Spain.

I’m interested to know when and where the bird was ringed and any further information you can supply.
