Tracking the migration of Eleonora's falcon

The four tracked Eleonora’s Falcons started their migratory journey from Greece to Africa in mid October. The following map, which is regularly updated, shows the migratory routes of the 4 birds. They all started their journey from the island of Andros and travel towards their wintering areas, in South Africa and Madagascar.

Follow the route of each bird and see the distance travelled at a time, until they complete their migration!
