Was this at flowing water or still? They prefer sluggish waters but usually along edges of flowing streams.

the Blackbuck enclosure is close to a pond area near the Rhino Café which has flowing water as well as still water areas. We did not see the Shutwing near the water it was around foliage on rocks.
