An afternoon at the zoo
Opportunity knocked, and we answered. A combined afternoon off and glorious February day meant a trip to the zoo this afternoon, where I saw something I've not seen before: Flamingos in the snow.
It's unseasonably warm, and our pink feathered friends seemed no worse off. They were sunning themselves, preening and having the flamingo equivalent of a good time.
This was also the first chance we've had to see the zoo's new arrival, "Kenya" the baby giraffe.
