Verreauxs Eagle (1 Viewer)

Hi, does anyone know how possible it is to see Verreauxs Eagle in Egypt? I heard a rumour that they have bred near Taba - not sure if this is related to the Ullmann (2002) article about rediscovering them in Sinai (in Birding World) or not as i haven't read it. How possible are they in the SE of the country? (There are of course access issues there.)
As i understand it, they are seen less regularly at Wadi Rum in Jordan these days, though thought to still be present in the wider area?

TIA, Mike.

Adam - yep so much better than "Black Eagle" i think! And nice to give Monsieur Verreaux a bit of credit.
David - sorry about the missing apostrophe, do you know if VE have been seen in Sinai, or SE Egypt?

The regular pair of years gone by is no more, I am not sure if there are any records at Wadi Rum these days, certainly not regular.

Well, if you don't get them there, book your next trip to South Africa where we found them with ease.

Jos - thanx that's actually really useful gen. Hmm.
Niels - people keep telling me i'd love South Africa! I'm sure they're right. Somewhere nearer first though, looking like Egypt (and perhaps a bit of Israel). Still be grateful for gen on VE in Egypt. TIA.

They're also not too hard to find in the Kenyan Rift Valley!
