5 juvenile Griffon Vultures present in Kresna Gorge on 15.10.2011

Five juvenile Griffon Vultures born in 2011 were observed at feeding site and later on roosting in Kresna Gorge on 15.10.2011.

The birds were not marked, but they most probably originate from Serbia or Croatia and use the Kresna Gorge as stepping stone during their migration towards Bosporus. From Bosporus these Griffon Vultures will most probably continue to their wintering grounds in Middle East or Africa.
