Egyptian vulture migration

Happy migration time for Buoux the Egyptian vulture

The Egyptian Vulture Buoux hatched in 2018 and has spent a lot of its life in captivity after being rescued and released twice.

Finally he’s crossed the sea and reached Africa after spending the summer in Spain and Portugal.

Interestingly, Buoux is present in areas that the Egyptian Vultures from the Douro (Portugal and Spain) tagged within the LIFE Rupis project are hanging out. The VCF (vulture Conservation Foundation) track the movements of Egyptian Vultures tagged in the Douro Canyon that borders Portugal and Spain, and it seems that Buoux uses similar areas, particularly the Boucle du Baoulé National Park in Mali.
