Vulture runs out of fuel on busy road

DRIVERS on a major road in Huesca thought that they had spotted a brand new type of speed camera at the side of the road.

Instead, it turned out to be a tired and disorientated griffon vulture (Gyps fulvus) which had stopped for a potentially dangerous rest.

Officers of the Guardia Civil kept an eye on the bird, warning motorists of its presence before it was able to recover and fly off.
