Satellite Tracked Vulture Movements 18 – 25 November 2017

The latest movements of our Bearded Vultures; Jeremia, Pharaoh, InkosiYeentaka, Lehlwa, Mac, and Mollie and our Cape Vultures; Bennie and N207, for the past week, that are fitted with satellite transmitters and included in our monitoring program.

This breeding season we have found the nesting sites of InkosiYeentaka and Lehlwa. These individuals were fitted with transmitters as first year birds in 2009, and we are very lucky to have been able to follow them for such a long time. Both territories are new sites for our records. Many thanks to the efforts of Mpiti Letsie, Spurgeon Flemington and Tash Avni. Mac on the other hand is frequenting a known territory, which requires further investigation.

Satellite Tracked Vulture Movements 12 – 20 November 2017

The latest movements of our Bearded Vultures; Jeremia, Pharaoh, InkosiYeentaka, Lehlwa, Mac, and Mollie and our Cape Vultures; Bennie and N207, for the past week, that are fitted with satellite transmitters and included in our monitoring program. The day was spent looking for Camo in Golden Gate Highlands National Park. After a number of days spent looking by the SANParks Field Rangers, we finally found a transmitter. Luckily no dead bird, so we hope Camo is still well and just discarded his transmitter. Thank you to Dhiraj Nariandas and Tuba Sikhosana and their team for assisting with the search.
