News snippet 27 July 2012

As if Joe doesn’t have enough work to do, elephant have once again pulled up pipes at Kudu Pan during the night – not just one pipe but all the pipes!!! Joe is waging war with them now and plans on taking the TLB, dig a very deep trench and bury the pipe. The problem though is that there is a valve that needs to be accessible so I’m not sure what he’s going to do. The Shepherd’s trees (Boscia albitrunca) are flowering now – the flowers, in dense bunches, are strongly scented, attracting a multitude of butterflies and other buzzing insects.
