A new episode in BRC history

Spring 2019

After 11 years of autumn counts it was time for something completely different, so this year we organised the first structured spring count.



Batumi Raptor Count (BRC) aims to monitor and promote the Batumi bottleneck, where over 1,000,000 migrating raptors pass each autumn.
