6 Black Vulture pairs are incubating in Lleida’s Pre-Pyrenees

Black vulturesThe Black Vulture colony is currently comprised of 29-30 individuals settled in the Pre-Pyrenees of Lleida. At present, there are already 8 pairs in the colony, and one more that is being formed.

4 exogenous black vultures have joined the colony, that is to say, they have come from the outside, they have not been reintroduced or born in the area in the frame of the reintroduction project: Íbex and Neo, coming from the South of the Iberian Peninsula; and Quercy and Quasimodo, coming from France. The two Iberian black vultures have formed a pair with two endogenous females (Íbex with Ares, and Neo with Muga).

The number of pairs is 8: Perla and Portell, Bruna and Corneli, Menta and Mario, Oriol and Pessonada, Olga and Aleix, Muga and Neo, Modesto and Gallarda, and Ares and Ibex, and one more that is being formed, Foix and Grèvol, that would be the ninth one. Currently 6 pairs are incubating their egg. One more pair tried also to breed, but without success.

GREFA and Trenca are involved in the assisment and implementation of the Project, toghether with the staff of the Espai Natura Muntaya d’Alinyà and the rangers of the NHR of Boumort. REE is markedly engaged in financing the transmitters that allow us to radio track the black vultures from the project.
