That magical light eventually came through at dusk.
With the rains of the last couple of weeks having now let up the sun was given a chance to break through the clouds. And it’s this light that is always so stunning.
We were out through the middle of the day and a group of 43 Marabou Storks were on Banyini taking advantage of the new water in the pan which had presumably flushed a number of frogs out of hiding.
I still haven’t got back in to filming, but by the end of the week will be fully back into the swing of things. My shoulder is coming on strong and has had the 3 weeks rest suggested by the doctor.
I’ve really enjoyed the break and it’s been great being able to spend this quality time with my girls having fun in the bush before they head back to school in a couple of days. No doubt with piles of stories to tell. Although it seems they don’t actually talk about their bush holidays much. This is probably because they are so used to it that they feel there’s nothing new and exciting to talk about.
With the weather clearing and as we move into autumn, night time temperatures are dropping fast. Soon we’ll again be driving in our sleeping bags through the night.
