Latest Cape and Bearded Vulture tracks


Dear All

This weeks starts off with a final location for Lehlwa, a bird we have been following since he was a yearling in 2009. I noticed that he had stopped moving in the Sani Pass area. A couple of searches were immediately conducted by locally based colleagues, that fortunately revealed no dead bird on site. A final search, with the assistance of two receivers, was successful in locating the transmitter in the long grass on a steep slope. The transmitter and harness (with which it is attached to the bird) were intact and in surprisingly good condition still, so we assume the bird managed to wriggle out of the harness. Fortunately we managed to find where Lehlwa is breeding last year, so will be able to confirm how he is doing during the upcoming breeding season. Many thanks to the team that assisted with the search- your quick response is greatly appreciated.

Please find attached (Click here) the movements of our Bearded Vultures; Jeremia, Pharaoh, Lehlwa (final location) and Mollie and our Cape Vulture N207, for the past week. Our Cape Vulture is still moving quite extensively.

Kind regards
