Oh, no, I'm not faulting the mic saying it doesn't do a good job! I'm just trying to say (and failing) that the loud whoshes and thunderclaps are particularly hard to represent in compressed form, so we don't hear them like we would if we were there. I LOVE the way we can hear all the animals. I've been trying to train myself to id animals by their footsteps and the sound of them lapping water up, but It's going to take ages, since we don't get constant visitors at night.

So, you must change your lifestyle and stay up all night in order to see the animals during the South African day - or you must move to Africa or Europe! Laughing out loud Laughing out loud Laughing out loud
LOL

Well, they have a certain crispness at night that they don't during the day (maybe it's because all the subtlties are drowned out by Tyan and Egyp! LOL) so it's not the same. *grin*

Nights like this, it's hard to know what exactly you're hearing.. It's sounds that are pretty obviously beyond our stream's ability to transmit to us accurately.

I think that the microphone at Nkorho transmits the sounds extremely well..... I have managed to ID some animals, which can be heard but not seen, fairly accurately - for example I can now identify the sound of a large animal browsing, ungulates approaching, a hyaena kill!!!, and a few other off-camera sounds now -

At this time, we can hear the cicadas, the occasional bird and the wind only, for example. There are no other animal sounds to be heard.

That does not mean that there are no animals present of course as the smaller mammals, reptiles and nocturnal birds can only be 'heard' when drinking or fishing from the waterhole

12:16 is that something breathing next to the speaker or wind? I think it is an animal but I don't hear any snoring just heavy breathing. Monica

It is just the wind - there have been no animals seen or heard since the hyaena that Gerda reported a couple of hours ago?
