At Cheleka a Gabar Goshawk is trying to drink despite so many present Oryx .... He eventually fly away and wait for a quieter time :wink:

I'm very pleased to find Urikaruus once more, and for 4 nights :dance:
Jacques welcomes me and gives me the unit No. 4.
I think it is one that has the least amount of "visitors", Lionspoon will speak about them much better than me :doh:

Arrive neighbours ... and a squirrel followed by a Crow fled with a large piece of bread :shock:
This is the fight once the squirrel wins, then the Crow :lol:
in any case they were very busy :wink:

Image for the Squirrel

Image now, it's the crow

Image and still

Image and again the Squirrel

it was like a match... basketball or other, very entertainment :lol:

Meanwhile, at waterhole, two Kori Bustards are trying to push away the Springboks who would like to drink. And they do, all feathers out, running after younger, the show was hilarious :lol: :lol: :lol:

and the day is not at an end :whistle:

Magnificent entrance in to Urikaruus, it's promising :D

Later in the evening, a leopard :dance: :dance: :dance:
"one" told me that it is Barolong ... but who is none other than Tsamma :clap:
What luck, already a Leopard... blurred Leopard... but Leopard :lol:

Image


And then there are a lot of weird noise in the room and I am sure that one observes me at night ... behind the curtains :shock:

25.3.2013

Mata Mata and return

6:30, I gently prepare myself, a coffee to wake me, I'm never in a hurry. This is not the time that makes the good sightings ... but "right place/right time" and just at that moment a large bird landed at waterhole, :dance: is a Giant Eagle Owl ...
I tried a few photos, it is still too dark ... but I follow with the eyes, when it flies away to try to find it, a little later :wink:
It is here, in one of the tall trees alongside the cabins :thumbs_up:
