Love that the cam is closer, but there is still some guesswork. Keeps it fun. My money's on it being a grey duiker.

Looks like a Giant Eagle Owl you guys saw last night. The biggest owl I know of. About 65cm in length.

Nice sightings this morning. Very busy.
Believe it is going to be a very hot day with temperatures in the low 40's.
This will bring alot of animals to the water today and tonight.

Enjoy

The webcam will be offline until about 19:30 (SAST) because of maintenance on the power supply to Orpen. :(

We apologise for the inconvenience!
