Beginning of â??winterâ? in the Chyulus

Today is another day in the office, entering data from the Lion Guardians into the computer. The weather is good outside, but in the shade of the office it was cold and my feet were so freezing that I had to put on shoes, and put my computer on my lap to get some warmth. Amy has gone out with Seamus to track lions. I hope she will come back with some more photos of our local prides for you to see!

This month marks the beginning of cold weather here. But not nearly as cold as the weather I experienced in New York last year, when I went to attend a fundraising auction for the Lion Guardians and the Predator Compensation Fund. I couldn’t believe how cold it was then! Some parasites flourish in this type of weather; ticks especially are a nuisance right now, and will be the biggest problem to livestock and to us during field trips.

This photos show my desk in the office and to the right of my computer is a photo that was taken while I was in New York last year, of myself, Laurence and a friend of his at the auction. A perfect reminder of my trip.

    Dear Antony, I always read this blog and since I will be visiting Laurence on May 26th for a few days in Laikipia I was very much looking forward to meeting you too, but you are down in the Chuyulus. Hopefully one day we get the chance to see eachother. Keep up the good work!

    Antony, are you familiar with the phrase “like a chicken with it’s head cut off? That’s how my day has been. Thank goodness we are finally getting some warm weather here. It’s hard to concentrate on work because it looks so beautiful outside. Our office overlooks Puget Sound from the 34th floor making it hard to keep ones mind on business.

  • Perfect post to end this week, have a great weekend Antony. As for me, I’m off to work (night shift at the hospital)!

    Hi Antony, It’s the beggining of our hot weather here in So. Cal. 102 today and it’s only May. I wonder what August has in store for us? I’m already looking forward to winter and summer hasn’t really even started yet. Take care. Lisa

  • Hi Alejandra,
    I am sure once you down in Laikipia you can squize one day to visit the Guardians.
    Have a good weekend everybody and looking forward to seeing you Alejandra!
