  1. What about the alleged sighting of a pair of Gypaetus barbatus that appeared in Romanian press? Was it confirmed? I know that it’s a matter of high interest for you… 🙂

  2. that observation was made by hunter that is so good that not a very long ago shoot a fellow hunter…

    probably was a pair of black stork (Ciconia nigra) that were observed there later by other persons…

    also that area is not suitable for that species. 😉
