Hi Guys,
I have been watching the forum for a while but have not posted anything yet so here goes my first public post and thought it appropriate to post it here in the cammers section.

I went to Addo Park yesterday, Sun 31 Sep 2010. It is lovely and green after the recent rains. I tried to photograph the Brownhooded Kingfisher on its perch where it can normally be seen on the webcam but I had no luck .

I did however manage to get a photo of it sitting on the fence next to the hide.

Here in this photo in the top r/h corner can be seen where it can normally be seen perched on the webcam

Yes the camera is on top just behind where the birds like to perch.

When I go out to Addo again I will take a few pics of the area and see if I can get a shot of the camera. :cam:

A view from the lookout at the Addo Main Camp. The webcam and hide is situated under the greenery on the bottom left of the pic. Elephant can be seen at the waterhole and returning to feed up on the hillside.
