Aschka: Mid December 2013 to Mid April 2014
Aschka spent the first months of 2014 in Italy, Austria and Switzerland. For a long time she was on the move around Bormio, where she was observed on 27th December by Dario Azzalin. After a short visit to the Austrian Ötztal Valley Aschka flew to Switzerland. Here she was spotted in early April by Lucas Pitsch near the Ofen Pass.
Spring is the time when the young bearded vultures start to move through the Alps and explore the surrounding areas. So it pays to keep your eyes open. Maybe you can spot one of the wandering Bearded Vultures!
