Kira: April 2014 – December 2014

For about four and a half years, the GPS transmitter has sent regular data about Kira (picture: summer of 2011). From no other bearded vultures have GPS localisations been received over such a long period of time.

The localisations show that Kira has made a small area in the French Vanoise National Park her home. While the female in recent years roamed areas of 2,000 (2010) 18,000 (2011), 10,000 (2012) and 7,000 square kilometres (2013), she only moved in 2014 in an area of 300 square kilometres. We certainly hope that Kira will meet a partner here and soon breed for the first time.
