Hi all

Well the Olympics opening ceremony is about to begin! It's fair to say there's a sense of nervous anticipation amongst the British. But also immense pride. Even at this early stage it's clear to see that the people of London, and much of the UK, have really pulled together to create a friendly, welcoming atmosphere. Whether you're watching on TV, or are lucky enough to be going to the Games, enjoy!

Yesterday's results:

1. No. 2, Two cheetahs at Nossob on 21 points
2. No. 10, Because it is a special sighting on 15 points
3. No. 1, Valli Moosa on 7 points
4. No. 7, Very misty Orpen on 5 points

No-one got the right combination :(

Please choose 3 pics today:

1. Duiker having a night-cap
Image

2. Ellie family
Image

3. Ellie herd visit Orpen
Image

4. Kudus share the Addo waterhole with ellies
Image

5. Beautiful kudu bull
Image

6. Oryx and springboks during the night
