Welcome to a new day!
Nkorho Watering Hole Chat - Sunday 26 August, 2007
I just heard a snort very close to the cam tree. Who is lurking there?? A cat would not do that, would they? Sounded like what rhinos do when they have been drinking for awhile or are just out of cam range.
WATERHOLE WEATHER WORSENS!
Just when cammers were noticing an improvement with less snow and different cam angle, the situation did not last long. Heavier snow again began to fall and made it difficult to tell the difference between bokkies and kitties. The situation has improved in the past few minutes. Let's hope the situation continues to improve! Addicts are actively anticipating a clear vewing night with many special guests coming to the wh. Trying to distinguish between a cat, sheep or collie without a tail is not what happy cammers are looing forward to. Weather conditions seem to have improved, barely any wind. This is good, as some animals will not show their cute little faces or behinds when they can't hear or see if there is another animal at the wh that they would prefer not to meet. Zoomies have been cautioned to be sure everything is crisp as possible when they retire for the night. Western Hemisphere Addicts will keep an eye on things and will report sightings and post photos and videos whenever they can the rest of the evening.
Definitely a kitty there. But it was blinded by the blizzard. My Christmas tree is up, lights on and angel on top. I have to go to the store. I hope we have snowplows out when I get back!
Could have been a cat. There were 2 animals at 10 oclock. One went towards the marula, and looked darker when it turned. 2nd one went the other direction
I don't know what's back there drinking. Looks to be the size of a kitty to me. But the blizzard is too bad for a good view. And my Christmas tree is up, lights on, and angel on the top!
hyaenas? I just can't tell thru the snow
On my way and THANK YOU
I agree about seeing more ground and less sky, but noticing at our leopard and Ms Garbo like to drink more often from the finger end and side closest to the cam, I am beginning to think that a closer view of that end might be better than the entire wh as I have requested in the past. I do know that tiny bokkies are hard to even notice if the zoom is too far out. And many of them come to the finger end too and you can barely see a nose. Only the ellies seem to like coming over to the left and messing with the water pip and are thus out of camera view when that side is cut off. Hey! I write, it happens! Zoomie is making adjustments now! HOORAY!!
LOVE the new location of the camera. If you took a percentage of what comes from the left and what comes from the right, I'll go with the right. IMHO.
Ms Charlie, check out sightings or cam pics for Oct 27th or 28th.
Shutting down... see ya'll on the flip side of the storms.
