MARE - Marmara sea

"As air thermals don’t form over water, however, the storks would have to employ energetic wing-flapping to use such a route, a technique that burns 23 times more body fat than soaring over land. "
"Instead, they cross over at the Strait of Gibraltar, where Europe and Africa are separated by a mere 7.7 nautical miles of ocean. The storks rise as high as they can over the southern tip of Spain, after which they “surf” above the sea at height before once again picking up the thermals over land in north Africa."
(source: http://www.bbc.com/earth/story/20160321 ... bird-wings)

Gibraltar: 1 nautical mile = 1.85200 kilometers - 7.7 nautical miles = 14,2604km
Marmara sea: 8-10km (the narrowest point of the Istanbul Strait: 0,698km - https://goo.gl/images/TXJopg - the Bosporus Strait is the preferred route)

... It was very unfortunate to read about Raivo's fate.
Hopefully all other birds knows now the danger and stays away from that horrible electronic pool.

Thanks Solo for bringing back sweet memories of our late Raivo ! This was his wintering area in northern Israel during his last years. Thanks to new technologies, watching their itinararys in our times is a real plaisure. Thanks for your great work :thumbs: Liz - you too!
:hi: Abigyl,
I am still so sorry about Raivo :bow:
