An Egyptian vulture also at the supplementary feeding site of Sinite kamani [ 2012-06-29 ]
On June 27-28th 2012 an adult bird of the globally threatened species shared the meal of the Griffon Vultures.
Egyptian vultures (Neophron percnopterus) pairs have disappered from the area since the 90ies. This is the very first observation of the rare species at this particular feeding site, maintained within the Vultures Return in Bulgaria LIFE08 NAT/BG/278 Project.
The bird fed along with a group of elevan Griffons released from the nearby adaptation aviary.
We do hope that the programme for restoring the Griffon Vulture as a nesting species in the Balkan Mountains would lead to improving the conditions of the much rarer and more threatened Egyptian Vulture. The visit of an adult bird is very optimistic news and the team would continue providing food and monitoring for the arrival of new birds.
