Hanneke posted some great pic's of the NK watering hole, but does anyone know why the perch was moved? It seemed to be better in the middle of the pond for the eagle. Just curious.

I think they keep moving the branch so they have a reason to keep playing in the mud lol
LOL, isn't that always the way?
We have been very fortunate with leopard sightings lately.
Also, earlier this evening we had lots of alarm calls from various animals. Who knows, there could be something lurking close by.
regardless of the size, a cat is a cat. I can get my cats to do anything they want to do. I am so lucky they let me serve them. LOL
Lions (and all the other cats) like to keep us guessing when they might show up. It can be hit and miss. You can look in the Mammal sightings log and scroll down until you see "lions". If you click on any one of the dates it will take you to pictures of them.
Quite often we will get reports from the lodge when they are nearby and we can only hope that they get thirsty and come by for a drink.
When are the most active times for Lions? I have only seen one. When I get the chance to watch, it is usually early dawn in Africa. I am in Nevada (PST) and since school is going to start soon, the luxury of watching, watching, and watching is going to be gone. I will be happy with rough estimates.
You are very welcome Maynard :-) And welcome to Africam!

Hello Maynard. The post that you see is a tree branch that was placed there to try to attract various birds to the watering hole.

Our main attraction has been the fish eagle
What is that post in the watering hole and why does it keep moving? I just need to know for curiosity's sake.
Hi Sunfish, the post was moved so that we could once again enjoy the Marula tree reflection. I don't think the fish eagle minds. Today he caught lunch from the new location.
The bird calling at EP is the fiery-necked nightjar.
