News Snippet 5 July 2012

A ghastly wind blew in during the night bringing clouds which has steadily become thicker during the course of the day. I can’t bear the thought of having overcast weather over the next few days which always seems to happen prior to a cold front arriving – there’s supposed to be one coming on Saturday. Even a small group of waterbuck, who were near our driveway this moring, appeared to be prick-haired from the cold. Joe also witnessed an extremely funny scene today – he came across a group of warthog with adults and youngsters who had obviously been grovelling in amongst the cockleburr bushes down at the causeway and had burrs stuck on their hairy bodies!! I so wished he’d taken a photo or two of them to put on the website ’cause I’m sure there’ll be some of us who won’t believe it.
