Here comes the King

Currently, Bearded vultures are the rarest vultures in Europe, only occurring in the Pyrenees (around 100 breeding pairs), Corsica (8 pairs), Crete (9-10 breeding pairs), and a reintroduced population in in the Alps (20 breeding pairs). The total population in Europe (including Turkey and Russia) is estimated at 600 to 1000 pairs.

This picture was taken during my 2 days adventure in Buseu a little lost village in the spanish pyrenees. Jordi Canut has a project to protect the nature and the vultures and eagles in this region.
