I have just caught up with all the videos from the 7th WS. That first one of the eles was brilliant, so much splashing noise and wasn't it a big herd, fantastic to see as was the one of them messing around in the water, two of them were having a great play, although it did lok as if they were trying to drown one, although they weren't obviously, just playing.
Beautiful storks indeed and that close up on the first video was just lovely. Mum and Baby Hippo, gorgeous and that little calf was so tiny, it was lovely to see them. I'm not sure what that croc was eating, hopefully not a bird, maybe a big cat fish as you say, a good capture though.
Now that Owl was just fabulous and the calls were being answered for sure, so not sure if was calling to a mate as often they are not together in the same tree or whether he was just chancing his luck, who knows but it was delightful, really enjoyed that one WS.

Although I was lying in bed, which made it to difficult to type, I could watch the cams which was nice, and helped to distract me. I got three Videos that were really great, that I want to share.
The first is a rare sighting of a Brown Hyena, as they are endangered, it was eating something, and its not clear what, but as there was no sighting of a kill, it must have been something it's scavanged at Tau


The second is of a Cheetah hiding in the bushes really hard to spot even though I zoomed the video

The third is a must watch, a Baby Zebra Foal suckling. by its size I dont thin its more than a week or two old

Thanks for sharing those 3 clips WS. Aren't we lucky you were stuck in bed checking the cams?  Laughing 

Great to see a brown hyena, a first for me and difficult to see what it was tucking into but something tasty no doubt. The second clip was interesting, when the cheetah moved it's head round you could see its ears and eyes otherwise it was perfectly hidden in the amongst the acacia. The zebra foal feeding was very sweet and just so tiny.

Thanks WS a lovely end to the day.

  3 fantastic clips there WS, really enjoyed them. The Hyena was definitely taking something away, I thought it may be a bird of some sort but whatever it was it had long legs. Nice to see a brown Hyena, I think that's a first on here isn't it.

That Cheetah was so well hidden and if it wasn't for the head movements we wouldn't have seen him, amazing clip WS.

The little Zebra foal is gorgeous and I agree (not that i'm an expert  No ) it didn't look more than a couple of weeks old did it. Such a lovely sight to see for sure and they looked so relaxed didn't they. Lets hope that little foal has a long and happy life ahead of him.

Thanks WS, I really enjoyed all three of those  cheers

Thanks LW. A real one this time, and one of your favourites. There has been a Giant Eagle Owl at PP for the last few days, and no one has seen it catch anything to eat, but I got a video last night that when I zoomed showed it catching something proberbly a small rodent



Although its fuzzy you can tell from its actions its got something

Quiet a large herd of Elephants visited the Pond yesterday tea time with lots of young of different sizes. This Baby one was really funny to watch trying to use its trunk to drink. Don't think its quite got the knack yet  lol! 


Not sure if this was the same one, but it was suckling.

How fantastic was it to see that Eagle Owl WS   he was quite a big fellow wasn't he and although there was loads of splashing going on it did seem as though he caught something. Do you know if he is still hanging around the pond? I hope he is and you manage to capture him again....you now me and Owls  I love you 

That little baby Ele is adorable and your right, he doesn't know how to use his trunk does he, he was putting his head right in the pond to drink, bless him but he seemed to be having a good time and i'm sure he will get the hang of it very soon.
Loved the clip of him suckling and the noise from the herd and also the pond, the sounds from there are always so delightful aren't they, you could listen to them forever, such a fantastic sound.

Thanks so much for those three clips WS, always great to see whats going on at the pond  cheers

When I showed this little video to Mrs S, she said he looked like he was dancing so I thought I'd put it to music

Thanks  WS, two great clips.  I love the hippo baby using mum's head as a pillow, I bet that was some weight and she was very tolerant even when it went back again  Hugs   The little ele was adorable  I love you

Elephant behind  that little calf was sure shaking some moves WS  Elephant behind  just brilliant and I loved that mum got in on the act too and the ele on the left had me smiling too with the tail swinging around, a brilliant clip for sure   

The Hippo mum surely was patient wasn't she, as Lai said, he must have been a weight to rest on his mums nose, but how cute were they together  I love you 

Wait for me was so funny I think, he was having a high old time rubbing against the side and he looked precarious getting out of the water but he sure did motor to catch up with mum  Elephant behind 

Loved those WS, thanks so much for giving me the nudge

Petes Pond is down at the moment, and with the African Cams being a quiet I decided to have a look at Allens Bird Cam in SA. A really interesting mixture of Birds visit the feeder. So I took a very short video of then them, and caught this odd fellow, about halfway through. A Crested Barbet

Oh My Goodness WS, what an amazing cam that is, it's so lovely and its cheered me up after the Monarch post. What an incredible bird the Crested Barbet is, I have never heard of that before. The other birds are wonderful too, it is such a busy feeding table for sure.

Simply loved that WS, thanks so much  cheers 

Whats the link for that one WS, I would love to view that one.

This is a description of where the Webcam is situated, and what you can expect to see on it.

Welcome to our South African garden! With the Allen BirdCam you can witness many different garden birds and even small animals visit the bird feeder streaming 24/7. The Allen BirdCam is situated in a Pretoria (Tshwane), Gauteng, suburban garden, and allows us to share with you all the fun of watching so many feathered friends and even wildlife visit us. Well over 30 bird species have been seen on the camera and many birds are regulars and even easily recognisable as in the case of the Grey Hornbill with a broken beak or the tailless Black-collared Barbet.

Then there are also regular visits from wild bushbabies (Galago primates) and large spotted genets (mongoose and wild cat family) during the night as an unexpected bonus! Watch how each of the bushbabies has a its specific taste and preference for certain food items! For more info on what can be seen on the cam, please also check out their Facebook page and web site.
This is the link to the Webcam

http://beta.wildearth.tv./cam/allen-birdcam

WS

Ps Just at the moment the cam isn't working for some reason, but I'm sure it will be up soon

Thanks for all that info WS, it sounds even more a delightful cam reading that. I have just saved the link to my favourites and I am sure I will be peeking at that one quite a lot.
Shame it's not up at the moment, hopefully it will be streaming very soon.

Thanks WS. That should be a fun cam to follow. We see Barbet's in Kenya, mostly a Red & Yellow Barbet and they are magnificent.

WildEarth have developed a new site called Beta, as it's new there is the occasional glitch, but it's a bigger, and much better picture. You can access all the WildEarth cams from one page that includes Petes Pond, Djuma Waterhole, Tau Game lodge, Kwa Maritane, and Allen Bird Cam. Plus there are maney other Cams you can view if you wish.
So you now only need one link.
http://beta.wildearth.tv./cam/petes-pond

I've done a short Video that shows how to use the Live Cams feature to save time. Just follow the curser in the video.



Any questions let me know

WS
