Latest Cape and Bearded Vulture Tracks

Dear All 

Please find attached (click here) the movements of our Bearded Vultures; Jeremia, Pharaoh and Mollie and our Cape Vulture N207, for the past week. Our Cape Vulture provided quite a scare by not moving for four days but fortunately has become more active again!

Please also find attached a photo of our incubating bird from our nest camera.

Unfortunately some information below on another poisoning incident last week- a devastating loss of 537 vultures of several species:

PRESS RELEASE – VULTURE POISONING AT CT 1: Botswana

The public is informed that the Department of Wildlife and National Parks recently identified a poisoning site in a Wildlife Management Area CT 1 in the Central District. The poisoning was believed to have been caused by lacing of three poached elephant carcasses with a poisonous chemical which lead to significant mortality in vultures and eagles. A total of 537 vultures and two tawny eagles were found dead at the site. The breakdown included 10 cape vultures, 14 lappet faced vultures, 468 white backed vultures, 17 white headed vultures and 28 hooded vulture. The law enforcement team attending the scene is working around the clock to decontaminate the area. Sampling of carcasses and the environment was done for further laboratory analysis. The public in the vicinity of the area CT1 is request to report any wildlife mortalities which may be spotted in their areas. The Department is concerned with the habit of some individuals who deliberately poison animals as this is dangerous and harmful to the environment. Furthermore, the public is encouraged to desist from engaging in such illegal acts and report any suspicious activities which may suggest environmental poisoning to the nearest wildlife office or the police.

Looking at the data, it appears that our Bearded Vultures are all incubating now. Similarly our Nest Cam bird has also started incubating.

See below a link to an article related to the poisoning incident mentioned last week. Unfortunately there was a second incident, also in the Zululand area, this past week with at least 16 white-backs found dead.

This past week has not been a good one for vulture; a dead Cape Vulture was picked up in the Eastern Cape- quite close to where N207 is foraging. Cause of death still needs to be established. In a second incident, 9 White-backed Vultures and 3 Lappet-faced Vultures were found dead near a carcass laced with poison. The carcasses were already a few days old, but hopefully we will still be able to establish what type of poison was used.

On a happier note, our nestcam birds (see attached) have been adding some interesting items to their nest.

I have also attached a recent photo from our nest camera. The birds seem to be preparing their nest with fresh sticks and what looks like dinner.

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.
