Reintroduction of the Black Vulture in the Pyrenees / January 2013

Coma. black vultureOn the 27 days of tracking carried out in last January at the National Hunting Reserve of Boumort, 20 different Black Vulture specimens were monitored, both perching or feeding, by means of direct observation.

From the 20 black vultures monitored in Boumort January, 17 were released or born in the wild within the programme for the reintroduction of the Black Vulture in the Pyrenees. The other 3 were of exogenous origin: 1 juvenile Black Vulture with neither rings nor marks, probably Iberian, and 2 specimens –Nouanda and Prose– from Cévennes (France), where a reintroduction programme was also carried out in the nineties and where there is already a viable population of the species. From these 20 black vultures, Mario was the most observed (24 records) and the less observed vulture was Neus (2 records), who is settled in the Alinyà Natural Site.

During the month of January, the pairs formed by Perla and Portell and by Menta and Mario have completed the nests they started to build in last December. Other three Black Vulture pairs have been keeping their respective nests: Bruna and Corneli, Olga and Aleix, and Nouanda and Oriol.

Other relevant facts are that Alzina  -released at the Alinyà Natural Site on 25 July 2012- was found in the sorroundings of Frontignan (France) in last January, and Prose is missing since 10th January (maybe this specimen has decided to return to its place of origin, in Cévennes).
