On this wet Tuesday it was just us and a few classes of primary school children. All the staff were very welcoming, and we arrived just in time to see the penguins being fed.
I was pleasantly surprised by how many animals were out and about, even if some of them did look rather soggy and mis:
I loved the Arctic foxes, who were moulting for summer and whose resulting blend of grey and white fluff made them look like collie puppies, and spent a long time watching the lion lick his wives affectionately.
After a visit to the gift shop we went to feed the goats and inadvertently let the two tiniest and cutest ones out of their enclosure, into the area between two gates designed to stop them escaping into the zoo at large (the goatlock). We were unable to recapture them, so we left them happily eating bamboo and returned to our hotel.
