This weekend you should all be watching this web Ustream TV live feed…THIS WEEKEND!
Ostrich Egg – Cam Live!
If you are long time reader of mine you will know a couple of years ago I fell in love with little Pip. The baby Ostrich that was hatched and raised by the Dash family for a little before she tragically passed away. Baby birds, or birds in general are extremely sensitive and so the littlest thing can easily kill them.
Please join me on the 25th of this month and we can witness this awesome moment together, I guarantee you will not be disappointed! Please read my previous posts about the other viewings.
For those who are regular readers you may remember my slight obsession with Daddy Dash and his baby ostriches. Over the last couple of years I have been watching Dash raise baby ostriches all from Ustream from a live web feed.
There has been a lot of sadness, baby ostriches have a high mortality rate, which is why in the wild they lay so many eggs. So if you only have 5 eggs the chances of them all surviving are extremely rare. So after the last batch of babies and having only one survive I honestly wasn’t sure if Daddy Dash (as we call him) would ever do it again…But he is!
Over the years we have 3 groups of baby ostriches and grow and die.
This year we have a batch of 5 eggs and this will be the fourth attempt. Please join us on the 25th of July as this expected date of the new hatchlings! Until then watch them live on Ustream!

Share Your World – 2015 Week #20
What is the most important thing that you ever learned? (I bet it’s not something you learned in school)
No matter how genuinely nice you are and want to help others. For every nice genuine person, there is probably two or three “crazy” nasty type people and most people will let them win. You have to learn to be your own best friend and realise that sometimes you need to take a step back and take a step out and that is absolutely more than okay.
What feeds your enthusiasm for life?
The goodness in people and the beauty that is in nature. I think that I lost that for a while to be honest. I was so lost and trapped in a whole heap of darkness a few year backs that it was a real struggle to see any goodness. In all honesty, I think it was watching the live feeds on the birth of a baby Ostrich, that brought me back. It’s hard to explain to people.
What’s your most memorable (good or bad) airplane commercial or private flight?
I have not really had a good flight experience, I get all the motion sicknesses so every flight I have to the drugs that make me sleepy so I sleep right throughout. Except for the one time I flew to America, it was over 12 hours and I woke up a few times during the flight. I always have an urge to kiss the ground whenever I fly and we land.
If you were a great explorer, what would you explore?
I would love to explore and try to find the great city of Atlantis, but if that was impossible. I would love to explore Greece, Rome and Egypt. The ancient stories just do something for me.
Bonus question: What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?
