15 March 2019 – Raptor migration at Oulmès and Ezzhiliga

‘This Sunday 10 March, near El Harcha, Oulmès, Mohammed Hilmi and I saw a good number of migrating Short-toed Eagles and a few other species, including three Egyptian Vultures (https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S53680901). We also noted small flocks of European Chaffinches on the move. All birds were heading north.

On February 27 we saw another flux of birds on the move, this time mostly Black Kites. About five hundred birds were seen roosting and flying around the landfill of Oum Azza (https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S53229727) and another flock was seen flying north near Ezzhiliga (https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S53216656)’ (Pedro Fernandes)
