Francesco Germi


During the '80s and '90s I was involved in field studies on Golden Eagles, Peregrine Falcons and Egyptian Vultures in central and southern Italy (CIPR-LIPU).
Since 2003, with the Lothian & Borders Raptor Study Group (Scotland), I am monitoring the breeding success of a Peregrine Falcon population in coastal SE Scotland.
From 2004 onward I am coordinating a raptor migration research project in eastern Indonesia and New Guinea.
