...........And EURASIAN GRIFFON VULTURES now in Normandy

Northern France sightings but may be of interest….
5 Griffon Vultures at Maheru in the department of Orne, Lower Normandy at the moment. Also 5 wild Flamingos with Camargue rings on them in the Somme estuary near Calais now around the Marquenterre reserve. Balearic Shearwater numbers have not really built up in the Channel yet, but 20 or so for a month now off western Brittany (Tom Brereton, www.marine-life.org.uk/coastallatest.html
