Going out last week after dinner, we spotted an African Wild cat which, of course, slunk into the bush as we stopped the vehicle near it.
Not long after this, we rounded the corner of the explosives magazine; there are huge spotlights which act as security and which, in turn, attract the insect-eating night-jars .

A short drive into the bush proper, and we came across a young dik-dik
Driving along the haul road at night, we always look out for the Spotted Thick-knee which we've seen here before.
...and a Three-banded Plover
One evening we went out just before sunset and came across a small flock of Hamerkop. One male was trying to attract the attention of the female of his choice.

"I'm good at building a house!"
"So, my dear, will you marry me?"
As always, I just love to photograph the pond lilies
On Sunday morning we drove out to New Alhamisi Dam which is still very full. I posted the Pink-backed Pelican (Juveniles) which I managed to zoom into on the other side of the dam. Driving back along the bush road, we stopped to watch the antics of a banded mongoose.
This Banded Mongoose seemed to be very interested in something in the bush
