Bearded vultures have been detected at the three SFP that Trenca is running in the Pre-Pyrenees and Pyrenees in Lleida. We show you some of the pictures made with trail cameras during the years 2012, 2013 and already in 2014.

 

The activity of the SFP (supplementary feeding points) is directly related to the reintroduction of the Black Vulture in the Pyrenees, but all scavenger species benefited from them: in addition to the Black Vulture, also the Griffon Vulture, the Egyptian Vulture, the Bearded Vulture, the Black Kite, the Red Kite, and even some eagle species, as the Golden Eagle and probably others.

The Bearded Vulture, or Lammergeier, (Gypaetus barbatus) is one of the scarcest species of vulture. Bearded vultures are using the three Trenca’s SFPs, although they have been photographed only in two of them:

.-Isona SFP (or Siall SFP). At least 2 bearded vulture individuals are using this SFP. Pictures were taken with trail cameras on 12 and 25 May 2013.

.-Bassella SFP. At least 2 bearded vulture individuals have been observed in here, but pictures could not be taken so far.

.-Montferrer i Castellbò SFP (or Cal Roger SFP). Several different bearded vultures have been using this feeding station (at least 3 individuals, but they could be more), both in 2012 and 2013 (the last picture is already from 2014, 7 January).

Through the SPF (supplementary feeding points) network, Trenca Association has set up three sites in the Pre-Pyrenees and Pyrenees of Lleida whose objective is to ease the lack of food for scavenger raptors, which are key to the ecological balance of ecosystems. In the SFPs, moreover, raptiors can find safe food, with no poison.
