Last Day Out

As I'm off to have my left shoulder replacement on Wednesday and will be unable to drive for a while afterwards, I had to use up my free pass to Howlett's Wild Animal Park, which is the new home of London Zoo's Sumatran tiger "cub" Achilles.

He's the proud lord of his own territory now.





I just missed the snow leopards play fighting, they were retuning to their den by the time my camera was out.





The clouded leopards were as difficult to see as usual.


As a bonus I saw a housemartin feeding her young in a nest under the veranda roof of the restaurant. She flew past people's heads and they appeared not to even notice.

I hope everything went well with your operation, Val.

Great photos of the Tiger.

I haven't been to our local zoo, Taronga in years.

Presently doing some renovations of the house. I hate picking colours I tend to differ.
