Description:

We saw lots of these birds soaring and riding the thermals over the mountainous area surrounding our house. One day we saw around 50-70 congregating over a ridge close by, possibly for the thermals that were developing there, but they dispersed after around 5 minutes. Big birds, most were quite ragged looking, with missing flight feathers. Apologies for the quality of the pictures.

Add the scientific name

Hi, you need to add the scientific name as per my last comment. If you don't someone else may and you'll potentially lose the credit for your observation.
