A quiet week, predator wise, but plenty of heron pics at Orpen. White tailed mongoose was also seen, but the pics are not good. Sadly Addo is still not operational.

Last week’s favourite pics were: First No 1 Stunning Satara Serval, then 6 Wildebeeste at sunrise and 9 Rainbow sunset, with a tie for fourth place between 4 Portrait in stripes and 11 Babies ! Brand new goslings. The birdie pic which got the most votes was No 16 Satara's little flotilla . :clap:

Guys, I have a beeeeg problem, my phone has been down since Tuesday 19th, and I do not see it getting repaired any time soon, judging by the response I have had from my phone provider, so I guess there will be no more YFS until after I get back from the cricket - assuming they do something then.

Unless anyone else would like to step in and help out. Please feel free to post a new YFS if you would like to.

I have come to an internet shop to post this and have a quick look on the cams.

I am SO sorry about this.

Thanks for your patience.
