HALF A MILLION
Today added another 75.000 to the tally. Our volunteers have been counting for exactly 3 weeks now, and have reached a season total of 498.928 raptors! Almost half a million, right? Six more weeks to go, bring it!
The show started with harriers, between 7 and 8 o'clock a constant stream of Montagu's and Marsh over the station with many enjoyable Pallids. Also again a nice passage for Honey Buzzards with gigantic streams moving all around or spreading over the sky. Also and more Black Kites in the streams. Among these, today's highlights include 4 dark morph Marsh Harriers, adult Steppe Eagle and an adult Peregrine low overhead. Again, we want to dedicate this day to our friends who returned to home - this one is for Yves Dubois, Emmanuel Roy and Jonas Schärer thank you very much and see you again!
