Kira: February 2013 to March 2014
Kira remains faithful to her new home between the Mont Blanc and Torino. All locations of the past 14 months stem from this border region between Italy and France. For several months, her area of activity was concentrated to less than 100 square kilometres, in the Vanoise National Park, at Termignon.
The beautiful pictures are from Jean-Luc Pardi, who observed Kira here last June. The photos show how far into the moult the female Bearded Vulture is already. Based on the last bleached feather Kira could still be identified. Also the GPS transmitter that Kira carries on her back is clearly visible.
