Thanks for that WS. Added to my favourites and just had a look at Pete's pond and Allen birdcam, which had a collared dove visiting.

Great to see Wild dogs at Djuma  cheers

Cheers for that WS, I have added it to my favourites. Just checked out the bird cam but there is no connection so clicked on PP and boy, the sounds there tonight are amazing  Very Happy  Thanks for the video giving us the tour  cheers 

I think that little warthog family had some strange additions to their family......not seen warthogs like that before  Very Happy 

Great to see the wild dogs, that was a lovely clip and although you say it wasn't very clear it was great, you did get some good close ups of them. They really are wonderful aren't they.

Thanks WS

As I said with the new Beta programme it can be a bit glitch at the moment. With Africa being two hours in front of us, you might find by the time you get on after work its gone dark on the Bird Cam, that will improve when we go forward an hour. They call that a Cape Dove Lai, there is also a Mourning Dove that looks very similar. The Ponds ,and water holes are quiet at night at night at the moment with hardly any visits due to the amount of rains, and water available in the area. That will change once the dry season kicks in.

This is the brave, but sad story of a Blacksmith Plover at Petes Pond. The pair of Plovers since around have had a nest with three egg since around the 18th March, but it was in a very bad place right on the bank in the open. It has come very close to being destroyed a number of time by visiting animals, but today a group of Elephants arrived and the inevitable happened, but the female Plover really put up a brave fight trying to defend the nest, and eggs.

Oh WS, that was quite heart breaking to watch. She was so plucky to be amongst those ele's and try and protect her eggs, she is a real  Like a Star @ heaven , I didn't like the way the ele flipped her away with his trunk, that was quite hard to watch but when she went to the nest after they had moved on brought a lump to my throat. It's really tough out there in the wild protecting your unborn kids  Sad  hopefully she will be more successful next time, she obviously has the making of a good mum as she is so plucky, she just needs a safer place for her nest next time.......I wish her luck.

Sad Some more sad news tonight. I have just found out that Isilo the big tusker that I have posted pics, and photos of on here from Tembe has been found dead. He was the largest tusker in Africa, and estimated to be around 58 yrs old. Apparently he passed away in January, and his tusks had been stolen. At least it seems he passed away from old age, and was not poached, that at least is something to be thankful for. He did manage to live a full natural life



RIP Isilo  Crying or Very sad 

WS

That really is sad news WS. I know you have followed him and posted clips before. Like you I am glad he seems to have died a natural death and not through poaching, that would have been awful, so I suppose that is some consolation. It still is frustrating that his tusks were stolen though, even with a natural death there appears to be no respect.
Thank you for posting that lovely clip of him, he seems to be having a lovely time there doesn't he, which is a nice way to remember him

RIP Isilo  I love you Sad

Sad news indeed WS to lose one so great but what a fantastic age to live to & I'm glad he appears to have died of natural causes. Pity about his tusks being taken  Mad

Those eyelashes are something else aren't they but yes the talons are large but needed for hunting. Thanks so much for that WS......I have a huge smile  Laughing

Thought you'd like that LW, I know you love Owls. He was there for quite a while, and is a lovely specimen. The honour for the clarity really goes to the Zoomie who was on duty, but I did tweak the still shots

Gertjie ("Little G") The Baby Rhino - LIVE Channel

Gertjie AKA "Little G" is an orphaned baby rhino who's mother was killed in May by poachers for her horn. He is now in the care of the Hoedpsruit Endangered Species Centre, where he spends his days taking long walks, mud baths and grazing. The live camera below is his bedroom where he sleeps from 6pm-6am CAT (12pm-12am EST), and sometimes naps during the day. If you don't see him he is most likely enjoying the outdoors at HESC. You can see him being fed at approx 6pm, 9pm, 12am and 3am CAT

A couple of short clips from the Cam
Gertjie's the orphaned rhino's first mud bath at HESC

Quarantine a male Leopard who is one of Kurulas sons was fishing at Djuma Waterhole, this was just after he'd taken a snake on which someone identified as a Black Mamba  affraid lucky for him although the snake appeared to strike a few times it didn't hit him, and the snake went into the water

Thanks  WS. He's one lucky leopard, a Black Mamba is lethal. I guess all animals have to learn this things though. I loved the hippo sounds in the back ground Very Happy
