Griffon vultures marked in the Riserva Naturale Regionale del Lago di Cornino (IT)


On 4 July 2017, five griffon vultures have been marked with satellite tags in the Riserva Naturale Regionale del Lago di Cornino. In the framework of the LE-funded project "Big raptors in the National Park Hohe Tauern", four of this five griffons were marked on behalf of the National Park Hohe Tauern with the aim to study the spatial behaviour and the movement patterns between the breeding areas in Croatia and Friuli and the areas in Hohe Tauern which are frequently visited during the summer months.


Unfortunately all but one Griffon Vulture (F74) lost their tag already. F74 died because of electrocution.
