It appears there are multiple individuals being seen in this location. You managed to get photos of both the left and right faces of this one. If you compare photos like these over the years, you will be able to recognise the different individuals. Left and right faces are usually slightly different, like this one. With luck, observation around Christmas - New Year, esp. near burrows and termite mounds, might reveal which are male and which female.

Thanks for the tip Don. We might pop a wildlife camera near a termite mound around that time and see if we get lucky.
