At 11.09 we had those updates from Bushie

Ok update goes like this, the lioness and another female came back to the carcass last night and chased the lone hyena off the kill we looked for the lions on game drive this morning but they found nothing where is still alot of meat left on the carcass and now we are waiting for something to come and eat the jackals were there this morning but they have left and it has not been spotted by vultures as yet but i am sure it will not take long for them to pick up on it so at the moment it is a carcass waiting for someone to take up the opportunity to go and get some food i have smsed campbell and stil waiting to hear about the cams and what is happening with the NK cam had some more rain last night so that brings total of rain to 96mm over the last two weeks


there are currently two walbergh eagles feeding off the carcass at the moment


have just spoken to campbell there is a telkom problem but they are busy fixing it he will let me know as soon as it has been sorted out


The vultures should be here shortly the is enough lift for them to get here there is what looks like one hooded vulture here now but not sure and he is behind the tree making is harder to see

At about 8:15 I heard my first Woodland kingfisher on EP. Great  sound there, you can hear the birds clearly.

NK is still down
