The migration of Lesser and Greater Spotted Eagles in Lebanon
By Bernd Meyburg, Ivaylo D. Angelov , Christiane Meyburg
The Lesser Spotted Eagle (Clanga pomarina) is a long-distance migrant who migrates twice a year at least 10,000 km between the breeding areas and the wintering areas.
The breeding areas lie between Eastern Germany in the northwest, the area around Moscow in the northeast and stretches over Turkey as far as into the South Caspian lowlands in Iran.
Very little was known about the migration and wintering of the species before satellite telemetry started in 1992.
