Hennie van Heerden's Wildlife Diary

May 20, 2010

A “boaring” evening

Filed under: May — Hennie van Heerden @ 11:36 am

Through my photographical work for the municipality of Apeldoorn, a city near where I live, I got to know the forest ranger of that city. A very helpful and enthusiastic man with amazing knowledge of, and love for the terrain and wildlife in his region. Tonight he led me towards an underground hide deep in the forest, overlooking a clearing, and left me there. The first hours I spent in that hut nothing much happened. When it was nearly dark, a sudden movement in the bushes caught my eye; Wild Boar!! 2 Youngsters came and checked the clearing out and started digging for roots and plants. Not much later a sow with piglets also arrived at the scene. A most wonderful sight!!
