The image above (left) shows the immature Cinereous Vulture (Aegypius monachus) fitted with wing tag and satellite telemetry released on 10th May 2007 at Doi Lang, Chiang Mai, Thailand. It was photographed by Kanit Khanikul and made available to us through the good office of Dr Chaiyan Kasorndorkbua of Kasetsart University, Thailand.
Also released at the same time were four Himalayan Griffons (Gyps himalayensis).
It has since been reported by Dr Chaiyan, who oversaw the release, that the vulture was shot by a villager in Mynamar on July 2007.
The map above showing where vulture was released and where it was shot was provided by Allan Teo.
