Another sighting on Thursday was of three Grey Rhebok (Pelea capreolus). My mother spotted them first and pointed them out to me. A rare sight, they are always a joy to see—the most delightful of antelopes! I suspect it was a male (left) and female (right) with their calf (centre). Having had their fill of observing us, they darted across the hilltop, the white undersides of their tails on display.
My mother just came to me with a handful of fresh animal droppings asking what creature’s I thought they were. The droppings (the Cape Hare’s, I am certain) were in her bare hand.
There is a new visitor to the wilder parts of the garden of late, what I believe to be a Cape Hare (Lepus capensis). It visits in the morningtide and again in the eventide, and is mostly unconcerned with my presence (though it is a wild animal).
