The weather condition in 48th day was sunny and chilly, like common spring weather. The diversity is still good. And also White Storks are passing with the good numbers, however; the number of Lesser Spotted Eagle and Common Buzzard are tending to decrease. As expected, the number of Honey Buzzard is increasing. We continue to record Greater Spotted Eagle and also today the number of Steppe Eagle has set a record for Bosphorus! The total number was about 2,000 and the species were respectively White Stork, Lesser Spotted Eagle, Common Buzzard, Sparrowhawk, Honey Buzzard, Black Stork, Kestrel, Hobby, Booted Eagle, Steppe Eagle, Short-toed Snake Eagle, Greater Spotted Eagle, White-tailed Eagle, Imperial Eagle, Montagu’s Harrier, Pallid Harrier, Marsh Harrier and Black Kite. Tomorrow, the passing could be similar with today.
