Such a pity as this was the topic that made me join the forum in the first place :(

With so much water in the veld after the rain at all the cams, there hasn't been much to post on the cam threads this past week, but enough to do one YFS for the week, how about trying one covering the past week to see if there is any interest? Shall I prepare one later today?
