The morning is quiet, but then the blue wildebeest and springbok, and some oryx here and there, almost camp out from around 1230 right through to after 1700. The night is quiet again and you can stop watching when it gets dark.

Thank you, Bishop !
I love what you right about the daily sightings almost as much as I love the actual sightings :D

'Thysie, Spokie, glad you like it - just trying my best. :tongue: Told Nedret the other day that when I don't keep anything, it is almost as if I'm not contributing? :cry: I delete a LOT more than I keep! :shock: This one below I watched last night but forgot to post, tonight I deleted all 10 I watched again, except for one I'm thinking about. Only thing special about it is a late-night rhino, else there's not a lot going on... :hmz:

Great stuff bishop. Is there any way that I can slow it down for myself. Some images are just a flash and gets me very curious, but doesn't matter what I do, I can't even stop the image on the exact spot to see what I missed. :redface: . PLEASE HELP because curiosity will kill this vlakvark. :wall: :wall:

Vlakvark, I don't know of a way either, other than downloading it onto your PC and opening it in a video editor - I have the same problem when I screen them. :tongue:

The hyaenas seem to be denning close by, or they are very thirsty, because they sure are around a lot at night! And not even speaking about the impala during the day. Other than those you can see zebra, steenbok, black-backed jackal, or course lots of birds, and some nice big daggha bulls - old cantankerous buffalo bulls.

The brief African Wild Cat sighting at 0020 is very rare! Other than that the usual culprits put in their appearances: steenbok, black-backed jackal, hyaena, buffalo, impala, blue wildebeest, zebra, giraffe, and of course the birds.

The night start is quiet, with the ubiquitous impala providing lots of movement. Also to be seen is steenbok, blue wildebeest, warthog, buffalo (a whole crowd of daggha boys!) and jackal. And the elephant breeding herd at night tops it all off. Especially look around 21H25 for the couple of close-ups of the elephant. Unfortunately the magic of the close-up photos of the webcams diappear a bit on the movie, but still fine viewing.

Quite a nice spread of animals today. Buffalo, Impala, Blue wildebeest, Elephant, Zebra, Warthog, Kudu, Giraffe, Hyaena and Leopard, with the Marabou stork around almost the whole morning, and the buffalo parking off in the back the whole afternoon into the early night. Surprisingly the night is quite quiet.

The night starts off well with a breeding herd of elephants with lots of youngsters, and the morning is quite busy, though the afternoon and night is somewhat quiet. To be seen is Elephant, Buffalo, Impala, Warthog, Zebra, Giraffe and the Eagles that are now becoming regular visitors again. Today's special: Want to see where the term "spread-eagled" comes from? Look at 1127!
