At it!

Sorry for the poor quality of the pics.
The viz has been horrible and that's the best I've been able to come up with.

Anyway, I wanted to share that the Bulls are running!
The big females have left early to give birth in the rivers and are already back - and the others are mating down in Beqa Channel, meaning that we (obviously...) see no males and that many of the females are featuring mating scars, like Lee below who appears to have gotten herself into quite a bit of trouble*. Viz permitting, we're already counting up to 35 individuals, which is unprecedented for early January - and with at least already 4 identifiably new individuals, 2012 already promises to be a spectacular year!

So what are you waiting for!

Lee - roughing it! Click for detail.

* Yes Juerg, we're keeping tabs - don't worry! :)
