Both yesterday and today we did safari drives through the park after ringing. Yesterday we drove to Mzima Springs which are very beautiful, and produced some waterbirds as well as Crocodiles and Hippos. We had several Leopard encounters yesterday - apart for the Ngulia lodge resident, we bumped into three more doing real leopard stuff, including one chasing after a Dik-Dik. Impressive! This is the Ngulia beast having its dinner:
Other interesting mammals included two Black Rhinos and some Gemsbok.
Best bird was a Black-throated Wattle-eye, and other favourites were Pygmy Falcon and Pangani Longclaw that posed very nicely.
