News in Photos: Storks Migrate in Peace in Bekaa Valley – by Maher Ousta

The most important migration corridor is the Bekaa Rift Valley in the east of the country. This is the continuation of the Jordan Rift Valley and its fertile fields and extensive wetlands are used every year as a stopover for millions of migrant birds on passage. Embedded between the Mount Lebanon and Anti-Lebanon Mountains the valley is only a few kilometres wide in places.

Two years ago the Lebanese poachers proudly displayed pictures of a shot White Storks, Maher Ousta captured this year a rare picture of Storks Migrating in Peace in Bekaa Valley.
