Possible poisoning. This Cape Vulture was photographed on an embankment next to the railway track.
It was lying down preening. When it saw me it took off down slope and crashed into some thick bush. It was not able to lift off.
I tried to find the bird, but the bush was impenetrable.
The whole encounter was strange and I got the feeling it was not right.
Thinking back this was around the time a rhino was killed in the area, but it is difficult to place things temporally. Maybe it was linked.
