Hi Ferde........Im also going to the Underberg again, from the 5th until Thursday I think........I can't really be of much help, as I've been there once :D But ask in town for any help, as well as any Vulture Resturants the public can visit......Im just hoping they still around the farm when im back there! :pray:

Wish I knew more about the area, to help you, as well as myself find the other areas specials!

Please post a heads up in the Lamergeier thread. Well informed sources say that they are back in Golden Gate!

The sighting that tops any other - the Lammergeier we saw at The Highlands Mountain Retreat in the late afternoon. It had me jumping up and down like a little kid.

Sonja Kruger and her team now have 6 BVs fitted with tracking devices. The three females and two of the males are all one-year-olds while bird 61 is a three-year-old male. You can see that his movements range far wider than any of the other birds. This map gives one a very good idea of areas where one can expect to see bearded vultures.

Thanks for the interesting update on the movement pattern. 61 sure likes that remote area of the Eastern Cape.

You ticked bearded vulture this year yet as I am sure it is still on "the Stiffnecks list" ?

Thanks for sharing JvR :D

Hopefully I can pick up a sighting in the Eastern Cape, adding it to the Free State list would also be something special :D

Lizet,

You are just making us suffer now :)

Stunning photos of a very special bird. Next time you and Johan go on a trip, I volunteer to carry your camera equipment :lol:
