Rüppell's Vulture Gyps rueppellii (1)
(1) Cádiz On 10.3 an adult or nearly adult was seen at Tarifa, Cádiz within a Griffon vulture colony (Estefanía Aleu y Alexandre Justo). The authors have commented in Spanish:

"No observamos ningún tipo de interacción, creo que no estaba emparejado con ningún leonado por que el ave volaba de un posadero a otro constantemente, se posaba al lado de un nido, luego al lado de otro, luego llegaba un leonado y lo echaba, se iba a otro posadero que casualmente estaba al lado de otro nido... Según mi propia experiencia, un buitre con territorio/nido en una colonia no se comporta de esa forma." [No interaction with Griffons was noted, and we felt it was not paired to any of them. It was moving from one place to another. In our experience a territorial vulture does not behave in such way] . J.Elorriaga/Fundación Migres comments that during this winter some birds seem to have been reported but these sightings have not been published. See a photo below and thumbnail here.
