Early April 2016

At the beginning of the month our tracked vulture was in Quriyat, but it soon moved south over the mountains, and has been staying in a relatively confined area north of Ibra.  It seems the bird has been visiting the Ibra landfill site, but also areas around the ring road being constructed around Ibra.

Movements of Egyptian vulture during early April 2016.

Also, there is a new paper available on vulture use of the Al Multaqua Landfill site.  The landfill is perhaps the best place to see vultures if you are near Muscat.  You can download the paper here https://drive.google.com/open?id=0BzhIfKS1gn5cQjVOeF9TLUt4aFU
