Another day in my hide and another day of no filming.
The good thing is the dogs are still around and they did call the pups out while I was there but they called them around the corner into the rocks where I couldn’t see them. It looked like they were already regurgitating meat for the pups.
Then and adult gave one bark and the pups bolted back into the den. And that was them for the day.
At least the dogs did call the pups out with me there and when they saw me arriving this morning they only gave one bark and left me alone. So hopefully they’re slowly getting used to me. It’s sure going to be a long slow haul.
While sitting in the hide in the afternoon I heard a skirmish not too far off with wild dogs and a hyaena. I presume the dogs had killed and the hyaena was trying to steal the carcass. The dogs were having none of it and kept badgering the hyaena. The hyaena kept screaming as the wild dogs tormented it.
The lions roaring was more roaring stuff I hadn’t used before, shot a couple of weeks ago just after the lions had made their waterbuck kill.
