Black-winged stilt families in Malta


This 31 July 2020 video from Malta says about itself:

The two new Black-winged Stilt families at Għadira: an update!

Here is a video update about the new Black-winged Stilt (Fras-servjent) families which were formed this year at our Għadira Nature Reserve.

The young of the first pair which hatched on 19th June have over the past two weeks been flying around our nature reserves, moving from Għadira to Simar, as they build the strength needed for their first migration, whilst the chicks of the second pair which bred at Għadira in 2020 are also about to fledge soon.

This year we were happy to have eight Black-winged Stilt successfully hatch at our Mellieħa reserve. The Black-winged Stilt is a migratory wader species and following the breeding period, normally adults and their young would have left Għadira by late July or mid-August to continue migrating south.
