Mid June 2015

The vulture we have been tracking has probably just had a birthday.   This also means that his plumage is probably changing and he will look a bit different (more white) than he did when we caught him.  I keep calling 143580, "him", but it might be a "she".  We'd need to analyse the blood to determine its sex.

In the last weeks 143580 seems to have abandoned Quriyat, at least temporarily.  It has mostly been south of Muscat, and has made the occasional visit to the Al Amerat rubbish dump.  on 20 June, It visited Al Sareen Nature Reserve.

Movements of a three year old Egyptian vultures during 14-21 June 2015.
