For the last 3 weeks the Egyptian vulture we are tracking has been in Wadi Sareen and the Al Multaqa area, and has not made any trips to Ibra. This pattern is similar to what we have seen before. Typically, this bird settles in an area for a period of time, then as time passes makes forays out to other areas. More time passes and the visits to one of those areas increases until eventually all activity centres around the new area. Thus, this bird has moved to Quriyat (February), then Tahwa (March-April), then Ibra (April-July) and now Wadi Sareen (June-?).
Of course we caught this bird at Al Multaqa, and in recent days it has spent time at the landfill there.
