I did see both Spike, and Lady GaGa last night, but they were to quick to get a Video of. However a really nice surprise, and a rare visit by a predator yesterday teatime, a Leopard, a Male I think by the shape of its head. We dont get that many Big Cats at PP, because of the lack of cover its not good hunting country.

Oooh lots of different clips for me to catch up on, nice one WS cheers 

I do love those shots at the watering holes where the animals are reflected in the water, it's lovely. The lone wildie looked amazing Very Happy 

I think you are right with the leopard being a male, looks big enough to be - great shot of him/her Cool 

Lovely male lion, he looked quite young Cool

Fantastic WS I loved the Leopard clip and that has to be a male for sure. I loved the commentary whilst he was drinking, I reckon it was Bonnie and Clyde giving it all theyve got lol! 

A great clip of the male lion and how amusing that he had to mark his territory on his way out and casually walked past the ele.

Two really brilliant clips, thanks a lot WS.

An update on how the Guck family have fared over the last week.s The Gucklets are now fledging, out of the original 12 ther are now 10, unfortunately 2 were killed by a Vervet Monkey, and one was injured, but has since recovered. Bonnie, and Clyde have really done a brilliant job to get as many as 10 through to this stage
A quick 16 sec Video




Another quick one 10 secs of what I think is a Reed or Swamp Warbler thats been entertaining us at PP with its song at night


Finaly a video of what looks like a bit of courting at Tembe on Africa

This is something that I think not many people have seen. A Black Backed Jackal was seen fishing at Petes Pond last night, it caught one fish, about 15 mins before this Video was taken, and then returned to try its luck agagin.



How close can you get to a Larger Spotted Genet



Close up of a Green Backed Heron

Oh my goodness WS the video of the genet and heron are so clear, they are lovely clips, I really enjoyed them, the genet is lovely. Wow the jackal fishing is a first for me, I have never seen a jackal doing that before and I wouldnt have thought they would have gone into the water like that. Brilliant that Guck family have done so well, Bonnie and Clyde have done an amazing job, it was lovely to see them again and the read warbler is a sweet looking bird.
Really enjoyed all those clips WS, thanks a lot.

Thanks for your comments LW, glad you like the clips. We now think the Warbler is an African Reed Warbler by its song, both the Reed Warbler, and the Swamp Warbler are very similar. Although Jackals have been round the Pond for a long time, we have never seen one enter the water like that before.

WS

Ps Just a little footnote. I think I said around May my little Videos had been viewed Over 5,000 times. They have now viewed getting on for 11,000

Quick update on the Pond. All ten of the Gucklets have fledged safely they left with Mum & Dad, and a new pair have now taken over the Pond.
  I have finaly achieved my ambition of naming a Leopard Siri. PP Chat have agreed to name one that seems to have made the Pond part of its territory, and we are not sure if its Male or Female so Siri ( Mystery ) seemed a good name

Meet Siri

    How brilliant is that WS and Siri is such a lovely name and how fitting as you dont know if its male or female. Thats a lovely clip and also well done for getting sooooooooooo many views on your videos, thats a real achievement but then again, they are so worth watching and you put so much effort into them, you definitely are You the man 

Great that all 10 Gucklets have fledged with mum and dad, thats brilliant news but I bet you will miss watching them and we will miss the clips of them.

Again, well done WS on your Leopard naming, it really is lovely news:bounce1:

Ahhhh thats a kind of mixed feeling WS. Good to see them fledge but kind of sad they have gone. Nature often does leave you with mixed feelings doesnt it. Thanks for capturing that and I will try and remember the happy side that they all fledged bounce

Well I never knew that WS. You learn something new everyday. Perhaps it was a case of needs must although I can't imagine that hyena going hungry with those jaws.

Great clip, thanks WS.

The Mopane Moths or Mopane worm as the pupa are called are very nutritious. They are 60 percent protein and contain lots of fats. They are higher in protein than beef, and are eaten by lots of animals. The Genet is forever there, but it's the first time we've seen Hyenas, so perhaps there's shortage of food for them. Even the local population eat them as they provide an important supplement to their diet, either dried, or wet, and fried to a crisp

Well that was an interesting clip WS and info as well. I would never have thought about them eating moths either. It seems as if everything on this planet is a food source of some sort, as they say, you live and learn and learning is great Very Happy

A really great visit by Siri yesterday tea time. He now seems to be quite relaxed at Petes Pond. Three very short Videos of his visit, two are around a minute and one of 30 secs
