Caracal at Driehoek for the Cape Leopard Trust

It’s been 3 months since Jurg last went to Driehoek volunteering to monitor traps for the Cape Leopard Trust. This time, the signal went off near Quinton’s base at Matjiesriver.

The team met at the walk thru trap for caracal. Jurg wanted to take a picture of the caracal IN the trap – but Dr. Quinton Martins was adamant. ‘We have to get the caracal out of the cage, before he hurts himself!’ First the welfare of the caracal.

Lughnasa flowers for Annie

Chinese winter-flowering jasmine fountains near our post-box. 
‘You’ve got a postcard from China!’ 
‘Ooh that’ll be from Annie Yim on G+ in Taiwan.’

Annie's postcard
Nimmt sich kein Blatt vor den Mund
- that would be both of us!

It’s a strange feeling to hold in my hand a postcard handwritten by a virtual friend.
