Raptor and soaring bird count for 18/8/16. Autumn 2016 – Day 1.

The raptor migration count started well today on Antikythira. A steady NW wind brought the first honey buzzard flock of the season. Fifty nine in total plus a black kite and an osprey.

Let’s hope the winds continue to blow favourably, bringing more raptors our way.
