The Peregrine Fund Notes From The Field
Back in the MMNR
Corinne Kendall — in East Africa Project    Share

This week, Quagmire, an adult African white-backed Vulture, decided to leave the wildebeest. Initially this 10 pound bird was in Serengeti, moving to the southern tip where many of the migratory wildebeest are likely to be hanging out these days. But then he turned north returning to Masai Mara National Reserve (MMNR).

Back in the MMNR, Quagmire spent his days wandering along the huge Mara river before moving even farther north. Surprisingly he stopped not too far from Narok, the closest large town to the Masai Mara National Reserve. In this heavily grazed and urban area, I can't imagine him finding much food, but he spent quite a few days there. Perhaps I will see him upon my return at the end of the month, soaring over the road, as I drive back to my home at Ilkiliani lodge on the border of the park. Quagmire 4 February
