Rehabilitated black kite freed in Malta

This video says about itself:

2 October 2017

This juvenile Black Kite was recovered after being spotted by a couple on the beach at Xrobb l-Għaġin. The bird was retrieved on August 4th, at the start of the autumn migration.

An examination by the vet revealed that the bird was illegally shot and had a broken left wing. Under the professional care of our vet and constant monitoring of its health and injured wing, the bird slowly recovered and the wing fully healed.

The bird of prey was released on Comino on September 25th after it was ringed. Comino is a protected bird sanctuary.

Help us rehabilitate more injured birds like this by donating to our new crowdfunding campaign.
