04.05.2015 – Migration Diary

56th day was warm and windy. The migrants that mostly passed from high altitude because of hot weather was drifted to southern side and probably the important part of of these birds could not be seen. The number of White Stork has the highest numbe for today. The total number was about 1,000 and the species are respectively White Stork, Honey Buzzard, Common Buzzard, Lesser Spotted Eagle, Black Stork, Sparrowhawk, Black Kite, Hobby,Kestrel and Marsh Harrier. After thee 250,000 Honey Buzzard that was counted in Eliat, in the coming days the migrational movement could be colorful at the Bosphorus, as I estimate.
