A VULTURE with a five-foot wingspan is still on the loose in the Suffolk countryside.

Staff at the Suffolk Owl Sanctuary are this morning following up reports that Inca, the Turkey Vulture, is somewhere between Cretingham and Framsden.

He was blown off course during a training exercise last Tuesday and despite near-by sightings, staff haven't been able to catch him yet.

Stella Garrett, who works at the sanctuary in Stonham Barns, said: “He's probably having a whale of a time.

“He eats all sorts like mice and roadkill. If the food dried up he would want to come back.

“He is difficult to catch because he's so quick.”
