Would someone be so kind as to identify the creature running past the webcam May 26, 2013 posted in the Addo highlight @ 22:36 ; Until then it shall be known as Stick Bird.

Can't locate the pic you are referring to.

Could you perhaps post the link?

At that time of night it is lilkely to be a spotted thick-knee.

I have seen them in the camp near the hide that the cam is attached to. They are nocturnal.

Hey Mel,

I saw this as well last night... just too busy working to have time to post :roll:
I think whatever the 'meat' is was brought in by a hyena earlier as you see here:

Happy camming :thumbs_up:

Good morning.
On the evening of 7 July there was a big play-off at Satara between hyenas and a big male lion next to the fence in front of the guest house and the HR camping grounds at about 21h30. From about 19h00 we could hear the lions all around the camp. We watched how first the hyenas start fighting with an intruder (unknown hyena) and then the male lion charged in as well. At one point they ran to the webcam side. I was wondering if there was any footage of this on the webcams? I cannot find that days pics. Can anybody assist?
