A young male Eurasian Black Vulture, fitted with a satellite transmitter in the Aveyron region of southern France in Augustus 2019, was found back along the Niger-Nigeria border in December 2019!  It is the first record of this species for Niger, and probably also for Nigeria.  See http://rapaces.lpo.fr/vautour-moine/xylophone-au-nig-ria and https://www.magornitho.org/2020/05/cinereous-vultures-wandering-africa/
