Whilst I was sleeping, Lindsey took this picture, of a Robin Chat, it’s either a Rüppell’s Robin-Chat (Cossypha semirufa) or White-browed Robin-Chat (Cossypha heuglini).

Ilkeliani Camp - Masai Mara National Reserve

Location of Ilkeliani Camp, on the Talek River - Masai Mara National Reserve

The Talek River was the location, that the BBC filmed Bella the Leopard in Big Cat Live!

and these pictures of me sleeping outside the tent, were taken at Ilkeliani Camp, Masai Mara National Reserve. It had been a long day, with a 4.30am start, and Balloon Ride across the Masai Mara National Reserve,  traditional Balloon flight Champagne breakfast, followed by a long game drive until 4.00pm, and then Andy was knackered!

Note the banana skins left in the ash tray, later the Gibbons came, and s**t all over the porch and chairs, and sun lounger, and through the ash tray round the back of the tent! I forgot we were in Africa, and Wild Animals were around, you don’t get that issue in England!
