Endangered Condors have been released back into the wild high up in Chile’s Andes.
It comes after a poisoning scare in the area which saw more than a dozen of the large birds mysteriously crash to the ground earlier this month.

After the Birdfair lived up to it’s billing as the Glastonbury of the bird world with torrential rain, mud and traffic jams yesterday, the sun’s now shining and the mud’s drying nicely. It looks like being a busy weekend!
The stands are all up, binoculars polished and the bird books are stacked: ‘Glastonbury for Birdwatchers’ is about to start!
Looking forward to visiting this year’s Birdfair, will be blogging here and I’m sure that there will be a few tweets along the way (dreadful pun intended…)
