The young bearded vultures that have been released last year are now exploring further areas of the Alps, but not only in the Alps. Inge
, released in the Hohe Tauern National Park
last year, has done a little excursion into the flatland of Bavaria, Germany on Wednesday. The situation was drastic as her nest sister Glocknerlady
has already undertaken a strange journey to Slovenia last autumn and has been caught and brought to the raptor centre in Haringsee. She had a raised lead level in the blood and behavioural disorders. Now Glocknerlady is fully recovered and is ready for a second release in the National Park in the next weeks. For Inge the signs were better and she already returned into the Alps in Upper Austria one day after her trip to Germany. Have a look on the maps
of Jakob, Smaragd, Inge and Glocknerlady.
