Kira: October to December 2011
After Kira was happily situated in the Upper Valais in the beginning of October, she soon moved on to the neighbouring country – to Italy and the Aosta Valley where she had also spent a large part of the summer. During this time she was spotted by local game wardens on the 8th and 31st October in the Saona Valley, in the east of the Gran Paradiso National Park.
On the 7th December Ezio Berguet reacted quickly and managed to take a snapsho with his phone of Kira as she flew past near Arnad. The place of the sighting and the GPS positioning are exactly matched. Sightings such as this are very important for us as we can verify the reliability and the accuracy of the satellite tracking.
