Cam Pics from yesterday (Donnabac-Tourneyman1-Penny2-Geschu) more here


Africam: We will keep the cameras away from rhino for all our cameras. Please respect the decisions of Zoomies when u think there may be some critter around but the camera is not moving there. Thanks for your consideration.     Happy  camming!!!!!!

yes finally had a critter walk right in front of the cam and I was still too slow at getting set up to get a good cam capture of it so missed that pic.  would be nice to have a nice cat sighting to end the Africam day but it better hurry time is running out.

hi Hafwyn, good too see you here again.  I also heard what I thinght might have been leopard sawing but wasn't sure that is what it was or where it was lol... also heard some sort of soft hitting sounds at EP that I couldn't figure out what that was too.  Now we need something to show itself so it is easier for me to ID I hope.

Hi Brian, I also answered on your other post, but to say again here, the mic is located in a "pit" which you can see to the left of the water hole that looks like a round slightly raised above ground level are with metal top.  That is why I think most of the echo/reverberation sound is caused by.  Not to say it isn't possible something else maybe adding to that effect like you mention.

Just wondering, is the software that the mike runs through at Tembe functioning correctly? Some audio software creates sound effects and I wondered if it is this that is making the sound at Tembe sound like it's in an echoing bathroom or soil pipe? I had a similar problem with the sounds on my computer a few years ago and by adjusting the graphic equaliser settings I found it had been set as 'bathroom'. Is it worth asking the staff at TE if this is the case there?

 

PS have posted this on the cams comments too but not sure how often that forum is checked and read.

back again.  quiet forum so guess not much has been happening on the cams so far but things can pick up again now that I am here.  Thanks to those that posted pics in the daily made pics thread so all can see what they missed while away.  I hope we have good sights and sounds tonight at the waterholes.  good camming all.

Hi everyone.  Looks like a nice day at all the cams.  Weather is wonderful here too - especially when considering that it is still March.  Smiling

Hope some critters show up while I have my sit down time here before work.
