Great to have another one of my images published, this time in the April issue of Birdwatch Magazine.
One of my Hooded Vulture images taken in The Gambia was used to help highlight the plight of the worlds vultures, who are severely in crisis.
A big part of the issue is the use of pain killing drugs used on cattle, which still carry the chemicals in their bodies when they die. The vultures subsequently get poisoned having fed on the carcass.
You’ll have seen the many Vulture pictures I’ve taken during my visits to the Spanish Pyrenees leading tours, but the ‘Hoodies’ being the most numerous of the species we see in The Gambia, get a little over looked.
Here’s a selection of my favourites, but if you want to see them for yourself, there is still room on my next Gambia tour.
