    White-backed vulture - I think my best shot of one. Sorry I'm not caught up with browsing. Been taking a couple of quilting days while it's raining here. I'll catch up with you all tomorrow evening after work.

    International Vulture Awareness Day (3rd September 2011)

    I meant to post this yesterday -better late than never. Most people are aware of the dramatic decline in Asian Vulture populations but unfortunately African Vultures are now also in trouble -even in "protected" environments such as the Masai Mara. Sadly recent research has suggested...
