Sampling comments: "Data collection at Site B ran from June to November 2011, representing hot summer months (April to October). At Site C, two data collection periods were used, the first being from January to September 2011, containing both winter and summer months, and from April to November 2012 at Site C, rep- resenting summer months only. A single Scoutguard SG560 (HCO Outdoors, Norcross, GA, USA) was installed at each water point, at a distance of 6-7 m from the water... Mammal records" were "classified into independent events using a criterion of 30 min or more between consecutive records of the same species...
