Now away from Malta, I've been checking the Raptorcamp updates here to see what is shot, what makes it through safely, and so on.
Today I checked and saw that lesser spotted eagles have appeared on the islanda again. The ones that stopped over when I was there were killed within moments of being spotted. So tomorrow I fear I will check and see these ones are no longer alive. But I offer up my deepfelt wishes that this time they beat the history and the odds and survive. And we will see.
