For the first time a tagged Griffon Vulture, which has flown all the way from Spain has been confirmed in Bulgaria. Unfortunately, the bird was found dead near Ugarchin.
[ 03.01.2018 ]
On December 18th 2017 the local hinting group brought to the Regional Inspectorate of Environment and Waters – Pleven the carcass of a Griffon Vulture found dead near the town of Ugarchin. The bird had a plastic yellow ring inscribed 8A6. The yellow colour of rings and wing-tags with three-alpha-numeric codes were exclusively saved for vultures of Spanish origin until very recently. This is why all Griffons released within the vulture restoration programme in the Balkan Mountains of Bulgaria also carry yellow wing tags and rings. They however all carry codes, starting with the letter “K” and here we were, with a bird tagged with an 8!
