Nkurru Cam 2.0 – Weekly Update #6

Hi,

After a few weeks off Nkurru Cam is back online! 🙂

Adele and I have been away on leave but now that we are back Nkurru Cam is working as hard as ever.  The waterhole has been pretty busy but the animals, the one we want to see on the camera, seem to be steering clear of Nkurru Cam’s range.

One evening we had lion tracks right in front of the camera but no images?!

Anyway, here goes with a quick video of some of the clips we got and then some images as well.

Nkurru plains is starting to take shape (behind the zebbies) so the general game at the Nkurru waterhole has been awesome!

Yes, I know that the dates are all wrong but, as we have found out, the dates resets everytime the battery are removed or are even bumped.  Mental made, so hopefully from next time the dates will be correct again!

Will be back with more from Nkurru Cam next week.

Before I say goodbye a quick image from Tlou Dam that you all might enjoy.  This time of year the stars are truly breathtaking so I decided to head out there early this morning.  This was one of the resulting images.
