Gleinalm, Steiermark

I'm currently working in a raptor migration survey in the alps of the Austrian state of Steiermark. The first five-day census took place last week to monitor the expected peak of Honey Buzzard (Pernis apivorus) migration. I recorded nine species of raptors, two Dotterels (Charadrius morinellus) and around a dozen of Honey Buzzards from my lookout on Mt. Speikkogel (1988 m. a. s. l.) in the Gleinalm area.
