Facebook
This is actually the 11th confirmed record of this rare bird: The first record was of a bird that was shot at Wardija on 24 May 1965. Another was shot at Buskett sometime later. Since then there were the following records: 1 in February 1976, two in December 1983, 1 October 1989, 2 in 2005, 1 in October/November 2007 and 1 in May 2009. All these records are listed in the book A complete guide to the birds of Malta. The bird is seen flying over a hide formerly used by hunters and trappers!

Long-legged Buzzard, Malta, undisclosed for bird's safety, 18 April 2014

Birding in Malta
This is only the 2nd CONFIRMED record for this species to the Maltese Islands. There are many others stuffed birds in hunters collections all over the Islands which were shot illegally and brought to Malta by Maltese hunters from north African countries, and claimed to be taken in Malta! Today's bird was first seen on 16th April by a team of Birdlife Malta's Spring Watch participants.
