Only one visit by a leopard, but we are now regularly getting good quality photos of both sides simultaneously. We are sending them to the Cape Leopard Trust for their records and for assistance with identification, but we haven't had a detailed response yet.
We've been over the photos for this year to see if there is a pattern to the visits and so far we can say the following:
1. We have recorded 19 separate visits between 1 January and 31 July this year.
2. Random frequency; sometimes two separate visits in a day, sometimes every couple of days, other times we have had a gap of six weeks between recorded visits.
3. Mostly nocturnal, but four of the visits were in daylight.
4. There seem to be two different individuals who appear to alternate their visits roughly speaking. Our unskilled efforts at identification are not always reliable and sometimes the picture quality is not good enough for a reliable identification.
5. Most visits are very short duration, simply walking through. There have been occasions where the leopard has stopped for a rub on a dead tree branch.
