Raptor Migration at Cape Tenaro
26 March to 6 April 2015
Note: The table has sought to exclude birds that had apparently stayed off passage for one or more days, so any individual is only counted once.
In addition the resident raptors - Short-toed Eagle, Common Buzzard and Kestrel have also been excluded.
This year's observations serve to reinforce the importance of Cape Tenaro and the Mani peninsula as a whole as a landfall for migrant birds of prey. The estimate I made in an earlier post (11 April 2013) of 500 to 1000 raptors arriving each spring may well be too conservative.
