You guys mustn't thank me - I'm not doing anything. You must thank the guys from SANParks who first of all came up with this idea, and then actually went through with it. :clap: :clap:

Me? I just get to watch the videos and decide whether there's enough, or unique enough, traffic to warrant keeping them, else I delete them. That's all. I just get to do what we all do anyway! :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

I guess it is time that I show that I am at least pretending to do something! :mrgreen:

Not sure yet how we'll handle this going forward, and whether we'll move this to one or more different sticky notes or what, but here's what I'm going to do. When I watch the videos to determine whether they're staying or going, I'm making notes for myself what action is on the cams. I add these to the comments of the video itself on YouTube, so that visitors to YouTube who see it there can at least read those comments (I know I always read the poster's comments.)

What I'll do is to post the same comments here when I link to a video. I'll be posting the links to a couple here tonight, and will hopefully from now on be able to do so on a regular basis. I'm way behind but hope to catch up in the next week or so.

Today was a quiet day, but look out for the "dancing" giraffe in the afternoon.

You can see jackal, hyaena, steenbok, marabou stock, blue wildebeest, warthog, impala, buffalo and elephant. Some only fleeting glimpses, some many and extended sightings.

Especially look out for the martial eagle at around 1225. The rest is the usual traffic of hyaena, zebra, impala, buffalo, blue wildebeest, steenbok and jackal. And always lots of birds.

Nah Siobain, anybody can do it.

DuQues! Sir, I have to inform you that I am a Stiffneck, and have been for some time already! (Actually just trying to be one is hard enough work!) LBJ's? :tongue:


The videos? Not a single one of the other thirteen I watched tonight made the cut, so all will be deleted if Nedret doesn't disagree with me.

Whoops! :lol:

Tried the Bird Challenge yet? <very innocent look>
I brought home my Sasol from work for it.. (Don't ask me what it was doing at work, but it was very handy! :lol: )

:mrgreen: When I got into bed I realised I should have put a <haughty tone on>...<haughty tone off> around that! :mrgreen: But I was not in the mood to get up again and do so.

Bird Challenge? Actually not lately, the time's just not there unfortunately. :cry: Did a couple when Johan was still running them, actually with my one one son, the one with the currently-broken-but-hopefully-healing-properly collarbone :roll: We did around 6-8/10 usually. But man, now THAT is WORK, HARD work! :big_eyes:

You can see Hyaena, Impala, Warthog, Elephant (one bull, another BIG bull and a breeding herd with calves), Baboons and Jackal.

I wonder whether that bull at 1818 has a name? I've asked on the Tuskers topic.



Edited to add:

AAT says on the Tuskers Forum

Quote:
You have seen Muliluane on the webcam, he is a named Tusker and roams the area between Sabi Sands and Kruger (between satara and tshokwane)
Area but also the shape of his tusks made it easy to recognize.
nice sighting on webcam !!


Edited once again to add the CORRECTION! This is not Muliluane, but in fact it is Mac, as the radio collar can actually be seen! Thanks to mafortini, as confirmed by Aat. :clap: :clap:
