NamibRand Boys - update as of 10/May

The last week and a bit of data shows once more that the boys are not afraid of walking around to get what they want.  Although they still spent most of their time close to the old holding pens, they have made a number of long trips out.  First they went east, getting to about 2.4 km away from the edge of NRNR, then west to the Bushman Koppies, before returning to the pens.  From there they headed north to Quivertree Forest, this time getting to less than 300m of the reserve boundary.  Completing their compass wheel they one again headed south to the pens and the following day headed south to the Losberg for just a few hours.  As of yesterday morning they were off to the North-West.

They do not appear to have visited either Keerweder or the pan.

I will be out of Internet contact for the next nine days.  I aim to get the next update out for the Boys on May 20th
