04.04.2015 – Migration Diary

26th day was sunny but also chilly. The intensive passing that started early morning continued until evening. The rapid increasing of the Lesser Spotted Eagles occuredd today, even though it was 1 week late. The second wave of the increasing White Stork numbers occured also today. First Egyptian Vulture was seen today. Total number is approximately 20,000; the species are respectively White Stork, Lesser Spotted Eagle, Common Buzzard, Black Stork, Sparrowhawk, Booted Eagle, Short-toed Snake Eagle, Black Kite, Marsh Harrier, Greater Spotted Eagle, Hen Harrier, Montagu’s Harrier, Pallid Harrier, Osprey, Kestrel and Egyptian Vulture. According the passing that continued until evening, I estimate that tomorrow will be also good day for watching migration.
