They were at the WH at Nkhoro on the right of my screen and walked off to the right and then appeared on the left of my screen coming into view at Pete's. It was, of course, two separate herds in two different countries but the timing was impeccable! How funny!

I missed the leopard too! I think I was mopping the kitchen floor at the time!
Stupid housework! ;-)

I knew that because my friend in CO sent me a photo of her daughter in the front yard next to the snowman they made. So how's it been so far?

Carla,
Did you see the Caracal (or was that an African Wildcat) at the Pond?

It was a Wildcat - recognized the rings on its tail.

Very active pond today- hyena, ele, good croc sightings (including his eating some large fish).

Oops, it's been a long day! Got my sunrise and sunset mixed up. I watched Fatty have his meal while I was having breakfast this morning!

And it's a beautiful sunrise NOW. Gee whiz!

I was watching last nite and I thought there was something wrong with the live feed because there was all this "stuff" flying by-it looked like a blizzard in January!

That was quite an invasion Lillipets. I think they even had bats. Did you see Fatty eat the moth?

Anyone listening right now? I think that is an owl screeching but may be wrong.

Come on out Ellies!

Just read on the NG Forum that they are introducing 18 Wild Dogs today in the Mashatu area, 9 adults and 9 young ones. So with any luck I could have my first wild dog sighting in July '08! <)
