Egyptian Vulture dispersal from France to Sicily

A new paper of Massimiliano Di Vittorio and co-authors about the first documented case of a long-distance movement of an Egyptian Vulture (4th plumage individual) from the French population to Sicily. This observation opens a new perspective for the conservation of the small and endangered Sicilian Egyptian Vulture population, providing evidence that persistence of the Italian population may be aided by new input from other countries.
