Default Wild Life Action

We spend hours tuned into this webcam footage at The Ark Lodge in the Aberdares, Kenya. Just thought some of you might be interested.

There's an amazing series on BBC 2 at the moment - Nature's Wierdest Events. It's fascinating and at times gruesome. One of the best bits was from Churchill on Hudson Bay in Canada. Some guy keeps something like 150 sled dogs on a spit into the bay and, just before the bay freezes the polar bears come into town. He followed one as it went out on the spit (the polar bears are very hungry at this stage) and was expecting to see it kill one of his dogs. That didn't happen - the two animals started playing with each other. Even more unusual was that the first polar bear brought his buddies with him and they all started playing with the sled dogs. This now happens every year when the polar bears come into Churchill looking for food before they can go out onto the ice and hunt.

There are also some great shots of Black Bears in a hot tub - and some really gruesome stuff about Angler fish, Bot fly grubs - mother nature is truly amazing!

Will give that a go. David Attenboroughs new show 'Africa' started last night...as expected, well worth watching.

At about 6.30pm yesterday evening, we counted 48 buffalo and 17 elephants including several only a few weeks old. Not many other species dare to venture so close to human habitation, though. At this very moment (9.50am), there is only a small handful of animals present.

Sounds like a dogging report - hows the weather ? Flash your lights - perhaps you will see more animals ?
