Thanks WS. The Genet certainly was very alert, amazing watching his ears twitching away picking up all the sounds around him. Lovely to see the Fish Eagle, they are magnificent birds.

3 lovely clips of Siri WS, he certainly is a stunning Leopard and a big boy too. As he is getting quite relaxed it will be nice if he stays around as its great to see him

Loved the Genet, I wonder if he is the one you managed to capture before? The Fish Eagle is a magnificent bird isnt he, he looked very in command there.

Thanks for all the clips WS, I really enjoyed them, a good way to end the day.

Thanks Guys, PP has been really busy with all sorts of animals visiting I think a lot is to do with how dry it is in Africa at the moment, but first an old friend from Tembe on Africam. This is a very short clip of Silito the oldest, and biggest Tusker in the area.
Silito


This Cat is related to yours
Around a131,000 years ago the Domestic Cat diverged from the African Wildcat


Little and Large
A of shot of a baby Elephants visit for a late drink at the Pond with its Mum, I dont think it could be much older than a couple of weeks, it was putting its head right down in the water to drink


Finaly this shot was taken at dawn this morning at PP, around 3-15 am our time. I was still up with tummy pains pale 

A Goliath Heron

Thanks WS, two great clips. He was certainly on a mission in the first one. I have seen one up a tree in Zambia I think (might have to check photos) but didn't realise they did it at such speed and with such agility  Very Happy

We've had a mystery Bird at PP for the last few nights, it was a Warbler, but no one was sure what sort. I finaly managed to ID it as a Sedge Warbler

Thanks Lai I was really chuffed at getting it ID'd. Last night was  WOW the most animals we have seen at PP in one go. A really big herd of Eland complete with loads of babies, somebody counted around a hundred

Wow WS I had a few to catch up on there but what a treat it was  Very Happy  Silito is just magnificent isn't he, those tusks really are something else for sure, I wonder if they ever get in his way? it was really nice to see him again, he's a very fine chap.

Its amazing how you can watch the African Wild Cat and it reminds you so much of your domestic cat. That was a really lovely clear clip, he/she was having a good old drink there.

That baby ele was tiny want it so I reckon your right, it cant have been very old at all, looks like it was dark there so a very lucky capture I reckon WS.

Ah, the Goliath Heron, I wonder if that is the same one you have seen there before? im not sure if they are territorial or not?

Mr Monitor surely was on a mission wasn't he, I have not seen one that active in a clip before and neither did I know that they climbed trees, he did it with such ease didn't he, two fantastic clips WS.

I like that little Sedge Warbler, not one I really know of so I need to read up on that one but its a very nice looking bird, well done for ID'ing it WS  cheers 

100 Eland, that's a huge herd isn't it.

Really enjoyed catching up on those WS, I do love your clips and captures from PP

Just looked that one up WS and they are also known as Comb Ducks and from the pictures I have seen I reckon that one is a male. Heres a little info on their breeding.

Reproduction[edit]

African birds breed during and after the rainy season and may not breed if the rain is scanty. Knob-billed Ducks nest mainly in tree holes,[7] also in tall grass. They line their nests with reeds, grass, or feathers, but not down.[11]

Males may have two mates at once or up to five in succession. They defend the females and young but not the nest sites. Unmated males perch in trees and wait for opportunities to mate.[11]

Females lay 7 to 15[7] yellowish-white eggs. Several females may lay in a single "dump nest" containing up to 50 eggs.[11]


That's taken from wiki.

Thanks for posting him WS, that's the first I have heard of them and learnt something new today  cheers

Thanks for all that info on the breeding habits LW, although I knew it was also called the Comb Duck, I did'nt know that.

They certainly looked like they were having fun there WS  Very Happy  it was quite a calm party until the one on the bank pushed the other one in........or that's what it looked like   
How lovely to see them just relaxing without a care in the world and enjoying the water. A lovely clip WS

A great clip of the vervet monkeys WS.  They all looked like they really enjoyed their dip and you really get to see just how long their tails are when they are sitting on the bank, especially the bigger one who looked like he was supervising the kids (and yes it did look like a push Littlewid).

The ele clip was lovely to watch, so many eles of all different ages happily coming to the waterhole. I hope they all stay safe and thrive, there is nothing better than a large herd of eles all coming together.

Thanks WS for taking time to share these great clips.

There was a Crocodile at Tau, that caught something, although I have zoomed the Video it's not clear what it got either a possible Cat Fish, or a Bird, although there was'nt a Bird visably in the attack. The Video is not graphic



Thats one side of nature that we do'nt like to think about, but has to happen for species to survive. This is the other side we love to see. A Hippo Mum, and her Baby at Djuma Waterhole, only a couple of weeks old we think. You can see Mum, eating grass at the side of the waterhole, a Hippo Baby starts to eat grasses at around 2 weeks ole, and a bit later Mum took them both out of the water, and out of site presumerably to feed

A load of Storks flew in to PP, I think they were on a migration, and stopped for some refreshment



There were a lot of Abdims Storks amongst them

Thanks  WS, I've had a catch up with the clips. That baby hippo is tiny and lovely to see them peacefully swimming around at night.

Amazing number of storks and the second stork clip makes you feel so peaceful just taking it all in.

Great selection again WS  cheers

Thanks Lai I love watching the cams, and listening to the sounds. It was a lovely morning at Petes Pond this morning a big group of Elephants came into the Pond, and it was bath, and playtime for the Kids. It was  wonderful to watch them enjoying themselves in the water

I Agree  WS. Even if there is no one around just listening to the bird song and taking in the scene is lovely.

Those eles looked like they were really enjoying their bath and great to see them in the wild doing what they should be doing.
