Satellite telemetry of Eleonora’s Falcon migration from Greece

9. November 2009

The exact migration route of the Eleonora’s Falcon has long been a mystery.
Satellite telemetry has helped in recent years to find out more about the migration of this elegant raptor. This year, for the first time in Greece, 2 adult and 2 juvenile falcons were equipped with satellite transmitters in their breeding colony on the island of Andros.
The movement of those 4 birds can be followed via the project’s website:
