Young Egyptian vulture released last week in Extremadura is already in central Morocco

On the 24 September a young Egyptian Vulture named Tizón was released in the Sierra de Hornachos (Extremadura), equipped with a GPS/GSM transmitter. The bird, a young born this year, was found a month ago at a petrol station, disoriented and suffering malnutrition. After a short period of recovery in the wildlife rehabilitation center of AMUS (Acción por el Mundo Salvaje), it was now returned to the wild, in time to resume its migration to Africa – in the first few hours after release it already covered a distance half-way to Gibraltar, from where it will cross the Mediterranean into north Africa.
