I too would be interested to get a bit of feed back , the tag did not seem to worry it at all and it was in good health feeding with 3 other birds in the shallows in the early morning.

I remember when we were in Kruger in April, I read a leaflet at LS rest camp about the tagging of the vultures and I think the Marabou storks as well, they asked for visitors to take down the tag number and report it to a telephone number. Unfortunately I cant remember it, but I am sure someone or one of the mods can help.

Here's what you can do... wrote:
Members of the public can become involved in monitoring the movements of vultures (AND MARABOUS, red. JoelR) during their travels in the region by reporting all sightings of tagged vultures throughout the year. Should any vultures be seen, the observer should record the date, time, locality, GPS coordinates (if possible), species, habitat and condition of the bird.

Most importantly, the colour of the tag and its specific alpha-numeric code must be recorded as this will provide us with an exact idea of the area where the bird was tagged. Ideally, observers should also at-
tempt to photograph the tagged bird and submit a low-resolution image (les than 100Kb) with their report.

Information can be sent to the South African Bird Ringing Unit (Safring) in Cape Town at telephone number +27 (0)21 650-2421/2 or safring@adu.uct.ac.za or contact the Birds of Prey Working Group directly at +27 (0)11 646-4629 or andreb@ewt.org.za, or contact Brian Jones at Moholoholo Rehabilitation Centre at 015 795 5236.
