Lammergeiers in France (1 Viewer)

Can anyone help, please? Four of us do a birding holiday every April, usually Pyrenees, Roussillon, Extramadura and southern Spain. We have had the odd glimpse of distant Lammergeier but thought we would have a look at eastern France next year. I have come across a few references to a re-introduction scheme for them near Mont Blanc (Sallanches) but cannot seem to get up to date information on its success or otherwise. Has anyone been there in the last few years? Advice would be appreciated.

Hey bluejonnyp!

Welcome to Birdforum! I am sure you will enjoy your visits here.

This link takes you to the pages on France. Maybe someone will be able to help if you ask there? Good luck!

If you want to get excellent views of Lammergeiers your best bet would be northeast Spain. Take a look at these itineraries if you are interested:

Aiguestortes east

Benasque

From Gistaín to Aínsa

Sierra de Guara East

Rincon de Belagua

I'm not sure if your priority is France or the Lammergeier, but in case it is the latter I think the above would be very relevant.
