God put me on earth to accomplish a certain amount of things. Right now I'm so far behind that I'll never die.

Wow, these used to be seen only in the far north of the Park. :-) I don't think I've ever seen one south of Letaba.

Only seen this now :o0ps:

I did see a YBO.
On a herd of some very emaciated Buffalo at the top end of the S28.
It was among a flock of about 20 RBO, and there was only the 1 YBO.
