Great sightings and reports.
@RichardJ, Landy1, and Lionspoon. I've been sent pics of the leopard at Nossob hide on the morning of the 24th. You were right Lionspoon, it was Balete. I've checked out the webcam pics and a leopard has certainly been seen a lot at the hide, but i can't tell who it is from those images. I'm assuming they are just screen shots people have taken....does anyone know if the original images are stored anywhere??

@Spanishwolf and Wanderw....100% correct ID as usual :thumbs_up: Lovely sighting. Can i ask if the exif info on the picture is correct (Date - 2012:08:10)? If you could try and think where you saw her that would be really useful information.

Seems like the sightings are on the up a bit, lets hope it lasts.

AstroMatt, I've asked Matthys about the webcam photos......although I'm sure Lionspoon (as an active webcammer!!!) can help you there too.

Hi Astromatt,

Can you give me a better indication of the time frame I need to look for these images? We store them every 30 seconds so there will be a lot to download and go through.

Previous requests were vary specific - ie 24th between 8:29 and 9:12 - that helps me a great deal
If I agreed with you we'd both be wrong.

Thanks very much stevenjm and matthys and lion queen.
I'll go through the highlights page tonight and try and get some specific times for you, but basically anything that has a leopard in it ;)
How far back do you have records of the images?

We saw Tsama in August last year, probably very near from Kamqua or Rooibrak. But i dont remember the exact place. I´m sorry.
Thank you very much.
