Se controlan 8 sitios conocidos de los que 3 están vacíos en el oeste de Ausrtia, tras haber estado ocupados previamente. En la zona este 4 de los 5 sitios conocidos están ocupados y suman 112 ejemplares y algunos más aislados.
in Austria we counted on this same Weekend 26th and 27th of November.
In total 8 known roosts were controlled.
In the East of Austria (Lower Austria) 4 of 5 known roost were occupied with a total 112 + individuals. In addition, single individuals are still being observed in Burgenland.
In the West (Vorarlberg and Tyrol) none of the 3 known roost were occupied (1 individual in Tyrol). The roost in Tyrol was discovered in October and was occupied until Mid-November (8-12 individuals, max. 24 individuals); the week before the count we had very strong winds here, this may have been the reason why they left. In Voralberg 2 individuals were observed flying towards the Swiss border. Single red Kites are still occasionally being observed in Tyrol, and regularly in Vorarlberg (Rhein valley).
