Tres Caballeros

Cinereous vulture - Buitre Negro This bird is on the red list of threadened species Its global population is estimated to number 7,800-10,500 pairs, roughly equating to 15,600-21,000 mature individuals. This consists of 2,300-2,500 pairs in Europe (BirdLife International 2004, Anon. 2004) and 5,500-8,000 pairs in Asia (Anon. 2004). The population in Korea has been estimated at c.50-10,000 wintering individuals (Brazil 2009). The estimate roughly equates to 23,400-31,500 individuals. Trend Justification: Although the European population is increasing, the much larger Asian population appears to be in decline. Overall, a slow to moderate and on-going decline is suspected. 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.

Twilight

Vall de Nuria is a high mountain valley. Very popular with skiers in winter. If you go hiking outside the ski slopes you can admire a wonderful landscape with many watercourses, waterfalls and a lot of nature. Vall de Núria near the border to France in the Comarca Ripollès in the north of Catalonia, is an important religious place. Since the mountain valley is car-free, a cogwheel railway (the Cremallera de Núria) runs from the valley town of Ribes de Freser via Queralbs into the valley; at the top station there are 1.967 meters the Santuari de la Mare de Déu de Núria, the sanctuary of Our Lady of Núria, the hermit's chapel of Sant Gil, a hotel, a small hydroelectric power station and some lifts.

Bardenas Land

The Bardenas Reales is a semi-desert natural region, or badlands, of some 42,000 hectares (100,000 acres) in southeast Navarre (Spain). The soils are made up of clay, chalk and sandstone and have been eroded by water and wind creating surprising shapes, canyons, plateaus, tabular structures and isolated hills, called cabezos. Bardenas lacks urban areas, vegetation is scarce and the many streams that cross the territory have a markedly seasonal flow, staying dry most of the year.

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.
