Some news about ST Eagles from Italy

April 26th, 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:

Returning of Short-toed Eagle to Poland

Migration birds of prey from Lublin region

After 153 days of silence GSM transmitter of the adult Short-toed Eagle female tagged in Poland in 2012 started working again in Africa on March 1st. So, Polish ornithologists could mark her spring migration route receiving coordinates of her location each hour. The route was different from the autumn one: the bird visited Greece and Ukraine where she was travelling during almost 3 weeks, maybe because of the bad weather conditions, but finally she achieved the old breeding territory in Poland /map/. Her partner was observed there on April 17th with caught snake in his beak. The female joined him 2 days later.

You can find more information about the project on the Lublin Ornithology Society website and you can see detailed descriptions of the Short-toed Eagle’s adventures on the LTO page in Facebook (Pl). Also please view the migration map:
