Here’s a look at the interesting bird sightings that we have had this month.
Sightings in order of gallery:
It was around 06:30am one morning guests and I left Sasakwa lodge for a morning game drive. We found the Butamtam pride with 12 individuals walking across the Sasakwa plain and so we followed the Lions for some time.
It was early morning on the Nyati Plains and the sun was just beginning to rise. The Butamtam pride were on the hunt. They had begun an approach on a breeding herd of Buffalo. A tall order for the Lions but with many mouths to feed the pressure was on. The lion prides of the Grumeti will quite often target Buffalo when other more favoured prey species have moved on to other pastures.
It was a great day this month, the day I witnessed the Caracal. This month has been fantastic for cats in general but I never thought I would find myself looking eye to eye with this rarely observed Caracal.
