And to see two brownies together is quite unusual too - they are generally solitary animals :shock:

Great stuff - thanks Rita!!!!! :gflower:

Pangolins on the cams

Hi all

I wanted to find out if anyone has ever seen a pangolin on the cameras? Been going to the park for 25 years now and have never seen a pangolin.

Not on the cam, but this was taken at the Tambotie, Maroela turn off.

It is about 1 km from the cam.
The bird doesn't sing because it has answers, it sings because it has a song.

Can anyone identify this bird? I couldn't capture the photo of it in flight.
