White Rhino Birth Video

The Telegraph happily reports the birth of a baby southern white rhino which was captured live by the South Lakes Wild Animal Park's webcam. The video footage of the birth is pretty amaing to see, and here's the live webcam link to see how mother and baby are getting on.
Ntombi gave birth to 70kg Nyala at South Lakes Wild Animal Park near Barrow after a 16 month pregnancy.

Here's the charming view from the webcam that I got as I was writing this post...
