Aylal, at the colony

Last data recived from Aylal show us that it's has joined Tamri colony since March, 4th. Aylal has spent last weeks around the area of Tamraght, but now it seems to be full time in the area of the colony.

Nevertheless, our wardens feel that the breeding season is a bit delayed compared to previous years, probably due to drought during winter and some recent cold weather.

Inspiring NBI

Here we can see some drawings by Joaquín López-Rojas with a mixed technique: pen drawing and digital colour.

This Sevilla based artist has participated in many publications about nature in Spain, Venezuela and Equatorial Guinea.

Very recently, Northern Bald Ibis was the main character on a short documentary on Moroccan TV. It's in arabic, but if you cannot understand, images are worth to see.

Enjoy it!!

All three Syrian adults, back in Palmyra

Our colleagues in Syria just told us that all three adults, Odeinat, Salama and Zenobia, are safely back from migration on the Syrian breeding grounds today. Odeinat has been transmitting since a couple of weeks, but Salama hadn't since late last year, but this now seems to simply be tag failure rather than anything worse. 

Still no sign of the other two untagged birds that were seen on the Ethiopian wintering grounds, so where those birds go is becoming a source of speculation. 

Or perhaps they will appear at Palmyra one of these days.
