Cinereous Vulture reintroduction in the Pyrenees: 3 pairs have started to breed in 2011

In 2010, the reintroduced Cinereous Vultures in the Pyrenees successfully raised their first chick.

This year it seems that the project could make another big step forward as 3 pairs have already laid an egg. The eggs were laid on 22nd, 25th of February and on the 1st of March.
This project is very important for connecting the large Spanish population with the much smaller (and reintroduced) population in France and hopefully in the long term also with the population on the Balkan.

There are now 4 pairs incubating. More information (in Spanish):

The reintroduction of the Cinereous Vulture in the Pyrenees may also have a positive effect on the Spanish Imperial Eagle:
The reintroduction project could be helping the expansion of the Spanish Imperial Eagle towards NE Spain.
