Early March 2016

On 1 March, 80 was visiting a rubbish dump just east of Bidiyah, but soon flew back to area around the Tahwa Landfill, where it has spent much of the past month.

Movements of juvenile Egyptian vulture (80) during first half of March 2016.  Click on the image to open it up larger in a new tab.
The map below shows the movements of 80 during a single 24 hour period.  The time stamps are in GMT, so one can see that the vulture is spending the day at the Tahwa Landfill, and its nights roosting in the steep sided wadi to the east.
