Good set of photos Helen, for census purposes. I can see 1M, 3F, 1J:
an unmarked male not quite fully mature, feeding head down in photo 3 and standing beside A2 in photo 4;
female collared H3, eartagged left pale blue 96, with a subadult nearby, probably her young of last year;
female collared A2, eartagged right green 100; and
female? collared (R?)4, eartagged left (white?) number obscured.
