I have checked the trap over the last 2 days, and both days have been terribly disappointing! The wind on both occasions blew the camo netting over the sensor, (the transmitter on day 1, and the receiver on day 2), giving us over 1000 breaks, but nothing to show for it – except over 200 blank images! It is frustrating, but the real kick in the teeth is still coming, (that is more like a punch to the stomach!)
We dusted the area to be able to easily see tracks, and found some fresh black rhino tracks walking straight through the trap! It crossed on the spot we had taken focus from, so we missed a cracker! Gutted!
The only thing to do is to keep hoping – and tie down the damn camo!!!
I am checking the trap again tomorrow, so I will keep you posted.
