The latest movements of our Bearded Vultures: Jeremia, Pharaoh, InkosiYeentaka, Lehlwa, Mac, Kloutjie, Camo and Mollie and our Cape Vulture Bennie for the period 18-25 December 2016, that are fitted with satellite transmitters and included in our monitoring program.
A big thank you to Ezemvelo KZN Wildlife’s Pat Lowry and his Field Rangers and Ben Hoffman from Raptor Rescue for finding Shuttle’s transmitter. The transmitter did indeed fall off the bird. A bird with wing tags was seen flying nearby, so hopefully Shuttle is still alive and well.
It appears that Bennie is now stationary (hopefully just from feasting over Christmas), so we will keep an eye on him now.
