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.
