Wildlife video

I so enjoyed watching your UWOL 9 wildlife videos from different parts of the world that I thought some of you would probably enjoy seeing a selection of wildlife footage from one of my most favourite places on earth and just four hours drive from my home.

I was not able to get out and make a video this time round so this is ‘instant’ footage - still on my computer - from our most recent trip to Kruger. I have cut it down rather drastically to three minutes and set it to music. The names of the different species have been listed at the end if you want to know what they are.

For anyone who would be interested in viewing my wildlife collage (20MB) here is the link:

Wow Marj, that was unreal the diverse wildlife you've found.

I think we need to schedule a UWOl field trip to your neck of the woods!!!

Hi Marj,
Great job and beautiful footage. Looks like Vimeo did ya good. I'm fascinated by the fact that a number of your birds are so similar to some of ours, although totally unrelated. For example, your Yellow-throated Longclaw is the spitting image of our Meadowlark. What was the descending call at about 10 seconds into the piece. It sounds exactly like a Canyon Wren.

Appreciate your comments Kevin, Steve.
No two trips to Kruger are the same. The diversity is amazing.

That was the call of the Red-faced Cisticola (pronounced Sis tikolla) (Cisticola erythrops)
Look up Wiki - the image of the Cisticola featured there is typical - difficult to tell these lbj's apart except by the call.

Thanks for your comments Annie, Helen and Alkim.

Annie - You won't be disappointed. Kruger is the size of a small country! While many sightings are found by chance, there are also some tricks to finding some of these species - like being at the camp gates when they open at sunrise and knowing the routes with good potential! (Birds are absolutely no problem at all - the rest camps attract them like magnets.)

Not a bad idea! Very favourable exchange rate for you anyway!
