YOUR favourite sightings?

Unread postby Tom124 » Thu Sep 24, 2009 9:32 pm

Hi there!

You're all probably very bored of me telling you that I'm posting daily wildlife reports and, although this will not be discontinued, I thought a bit more cammer involvement would be fantastic. So...... I would like to know your top 3 sightings at the end of each day! Instead of me posting mine, which in retrospect is pretty anti-social, everyone will get a say and everyday the top 3 will be decided from YOUR choices.
Happy Camming! :D :D
P.S Credit will also be given to the cam-watchers who captured the sighting. Seems fair :)

Ahhh, and what about those watching and not getting the chance to post because they're just a bit slower than the rest? How do they get their credit? :hmz:

Tom - I have not doubt the topic will catch on and grow. So many people just enjoy reading .... sometimes making that first post takes courage.

Just by the by, I met someone at Orpen camp in Kruger two weeks ago, and I was watching the waterhole the cam is on when he came to chat to me. The first thing he asked me was if I knew that there was a cam on the waterhole the whole world could see via internet.

I realised then just how many people know about these cams and how many enjoy them.

Your topic is great :clap:
