Settle back with your beverage of choice. It was cool (14C at a maximum) and damp and I had a delightful (but very tiring) time. I did get my 10,000 wobbly, muddy steps in.
The laughing hyena wasn't laughing - but seemed to be pretty comfortable just the same.
This goldfish had reached an impressive size and wasn't with the otters in the next few photos. I don't think it would have lasted long.
The female is Mishka, and the male Jake. Apparently they, and many other animals at the zoo, really missed people during lockdown. Many of the keepers moved to the zoo to keep them company - though I gather that having a lion roaring outside your window is not conducive to a good night's sleep.
Sorry, but I don't know the names of these lions. All the animals in the zoo are given names, and I have seen Jake and Mishka respond to theirs.
I am finishing this post with a 'common' house sparrow. Their numbers have been in decline and I was thrilled to see this one at the lion's enclosure.
