It is so dry. Is there anything left for the animals to eat?

Are these the lights you saw?

The moon rises in the east too.

Moonrise on 29 July was at 02:06

But it was not a full moon, but a crest moon.

So time and direction is spot on, it is whether it reflects 'fuller' on the cam, or not that is the question.

Webcams - Better sightings due to drought?

Unread post by HawkI007 » Thu Sep 15, 2016 1:57 pm

Is it just my imagination or are the webcams getting more exciting to watch now that the animals are more likely to congregate at the watering points?

I agree, the waterholes are very productive at the moment due to the drought; especially Orpen.
