Bird watch

A YOUNG Monk Vulture was spotted on Praia Grande beach, in Ferragudo, last Thursday (October 18).

Although this species of vulture once thrived in Europe, it has become endangered on this continent and is more common in Asia. However, protection and breeding programmes have been implemented in some countries, including Spain, in a bid to increase the vulture population.
