This exemplary of bearded vulture, very rare and difficult to see in coastal areas like Xerocampos, was a welcomed guest for a few days in mid-September, on the verandas of the Aktì Studios.
His presence here was probably linked to some difficulties the animal had in flight so that he was not able to reach the highest peaks of the mountains of Crete, his natural habitat.
But he had the good fortune of being "adopted" by tourists and the owners of the property, who "fed" him steaks!
He was then taken by the Forest Guard and led to Heraklion for treatment and rehabilitation.
We thank Jerry and Jill Bond for sending us this photograph taken during their vacation at Xerocampos
