Watering Hole Chat Site - Monday, 19 January, 2009

Remember to post which site you are referring to, NK for Nkorho, EP for Elephant Plains.

Happy camming, everyone!

By the way, Cerinthe has started a new thread, HERE where people can sign up to start a "New Day".  If you would like to try it, but aren't quite sure how, talk to Barry or Hanneke or me.

My choice for "Pic-O-The-Day" for yesterday.  (or the day before.)

And while I have your attention, if you haven't already checked out THIS THREAD concerning what the folks at Nkorho Lodge are doing for the kids at the Gottenberg Nursery School, please do!  We need your help!

Hi Barry, and then maybe we could also see the Chrysococcyx caprius , sorry i know only the german name Goldkuckuck

Hi Geschu ,  We will have to be on the look out for flashes of green ( Didirik Cuckoo ) of the Goldkuckkuck. They are known to parasitize ( lay their eggs in nest for someone else to brood ) Weavers nests. Wouldn't that be something to see ?  Smiling

Hi all.  I see a new day will be starting soon.  I have just been lurking while working on other projects.  Hope those rains don't cause any more problems with the EP cam.  It almost seemed like those weavers moved in overnight but sure were cool to watch during the day when the zoomie gave us close look.

Barry, what you said earlier about Grouse Mountain makes me a little ill.  Lol.   Down here we are still socked in.   Sun partially popped out for a little while earlier, but was quickly gone again.
