Day Out at Chester Zoo
We set off at nine, stopped to pick up a picnic and arrived at the zoo soon after it opened at ten. The plan – to take the train to the half way point, get on the next train and complete a full loop choosing where we wanted to explore. We waited for our first train, enjoyed the view from on high and planned.
Seen from the train.
Off we went on foot and watched this lady enjoying breakfast.
Cute but threatened Sitatungas from Central and Western Africa.
The meerkats were a joy to watch.
A hungry Bear.
Lots of variety.
Many plants and trees.
Harbingers of Spring.
Taking the register.
Beautiful Jaguars. The black one is eight months old, the other eighteen months.
The stars of the day.
ALL IN ALL LOTS TO SEE
SURPRISINGLY LARGE NUMBER OF ANIMALS
