Not many sightings. The usual animals. Two blacked maned lions at the low-water bridge at Balule. Hyena patrolling fence. Signal is non existent. Balule is SPECIAL!

The Honey Badgers where quite a way down the road, and moving so fast Reinette did not even have time to zoom in. The only pic we have is not very clear. From the colouring you can make out it is a HB, but not much else.

They where playing along the side of the road and I first though them to be dwarf mongoose. Then I realised what I was looking at. They dissapeared with in seconds.
