Today was another wet and grey day, so I decided to check out Marwell Wildlife Park, near Winchester. After a slow start it was a fun day. I think the highlights for me were the Arabian Sand Cats - which were beautiful (but in an enclosure too dark for photographs) and the Red Pandas.
On my first pass I walked straight past the enclosure because the Panda was not visible. It took me a short while to realise that it was up in the tree watching me. After that I spent a happy half hour with this most endearing creature. Utterly enchanting.
