The Vulture Conservation Foundation (VCF) have announced a very successful release season for bearded vultures in Andalucia this year with 8 individuals hacked back to the wild. Two of the birds were released in the Sierra de Castril Natural Park in Granada and the remaining six in the Sierras de Cazorla, Segura y Las Villas Natural Park

Clive I also read your excellent article about the bearded vulture. lots of info… Thanks!September 20, 2021 at 6:50 am #1015Miguel
24 in total across Europe released with a total of 10 in Spain! 🙂 Good news from the VCF
The first release took place on 25 April in Grands Causses and the last one on 30 July in Cazorla, closing extremely prolonged breeding and release seasons. From the 26 chicks produced, the Bearded Vulture EEP assigned 23 to five ongoing reintroduction and restocking projects: four in the Alps (two in Switzerland and two in Germany – a new release site), two in Corsica, seven within the framework of LIFE GypConnect (five in the Grands Causses and two in Vercors), three in Maestrazgo and seven in Andalusia. The remaining three, all females, became part of the network with the hope to one day become parents themselves, providing young ones to support the conservation of their own species.January 14, 2022 at 4:43 pm #1186Rachel
Nice update from the VCF re the eggs laid so far this breeding season. If all goes well they may even break the record of last years 10 chick season!January 18, 2022 at 10:03 am #1187clive
