The Marsh Boys

Going to see the Rest of the marsh pride we meet up with this young boys fighting with Hyenas and ridge pride is looking on.
What I can see was the three females had made a kill then hyenas come in hundreds and push them out out no argument at all.

On the processes they started fighting among them self attracting the young boys from Marsh pride who are depended on hyenas any way at this stage we counted upto 80 hyenas but could not move this young males from the Marsh pride.

Laughing, wooping, running, marking would not move them.
Its another fantastic Morning, Jonny was with me and his family.

The Marsh Boys must be really powerful to see off that many Hyenas. Are there not that many prey animals around, if the Lions are depending on the Hyenas for food

I echo what Leo209 said above, this is wonderful. How grand to hear about Cheza and Sala. Animal Planet had a BCD marathon on last Thursday, and they started with footage of Kike...then onto Cheza and Sala. It was nice seeing the stars again. Poor Clawed does look a bit worn, but, his eyes are still clear and striking.

Thank you for sharing/and updating us! Happy New Year everyone...

We need to some how make a stand to get this series back on the air. People all over the world want this back on, why wont BBC listen?


Great reports Bwana Jackson. Asante sana. Still waiting for the day you will meet Olive's and Lorian's cubs again. I just missed news of the mom cheetah and her 6 cubs...

I've seen a couple of postings that the BBC doesn't have the budget for BCD, then another posting awhile back said they DO...then on YouTube, I read someone mentioning about the page of Facebook when 'they' ask viewers for their feedback, that they'd like to bring BCD back, etc, and then the poster said their viewpoint was possible filming later on this year/or early next year. In short, who the heck knows (smile). I think they are waiting to see how Disney's African Cats does this year...and MY viewpoint is if the BBC/Natural History Unit doesn't 'ride the coat-tails' w/the promotional stuff that's going to be done...there is something WRONG with them. (smile)

Just my two cents!

A little snippet from Jonathan's forum:

..."Olso was great by the way – had a chance to work thorough the video capability on the Canon EOS 7D and 1DMk4 – we are so looking forward to incorporating some moving images in to our presentations in the future. The speaking engagements went well – lots of enthusiasm – Africa, India and Antarctica were the flavour of the month.

Ok – Just wanted to touch bases with you all. Sadly I’m getting the feeling that Big Cat Diary might just have been put to sleep for good. Just a hunch, but I think that the BBC may have too many other priorities right now – plus less money to play with. We will just have to figure out a way to keep you all engaged in a meaningful way with all those great big cat stories that are always just waiting to be recorded!"

I can only HOPE this isn't true. I guess we can bombard the BBC w/letters, emails, phone calls or whatever and tell them we want Big Cat Diary back. Why do a Facebook if you're going to end the series??! NOT nice from my standpoint.

When I began writing your article I could so easily understand what you meant to tell. Why don’t you also get into the teaching field? I am sure we all students shall pass out with flying colors, because even your articles are so simple and so easy to understand.
