We observed Black Kite (Milvus migrans) spring migration at Cap Bon (Tunisia) from 14 to 27 April 1992. There were 270 individuals that left the coast northeast bound, 90% of which were observed on only 4 days. Neither heavy winds nor observation times exercised any significant influence on the migratory flow. The average size of the Black Kite flocks that left the coast was significantly greater than the size of those that interrupted migration.
