    Can't wait for the fifth bear to arrive from S Korea later in the year.

    Lovely work to capture that sequence. The third shot is particularly fine!

    - Cheers, Ingrid - they do all look happy to be at YWP :)
    - let's hope the new arrival (Tongki) later in the year from S Korea will be more content than he is in his present enclosure!

    I heard a rumour that they are also hoping to rescue a couple of Ussuri Brown Bears from Japan

    - Many thanks for the Heads-Up Ingrid :)
    - I live over the fence from the Polars, and simply had no idea of this whatsoever!

    I belong to another forum that keeps things up to date on many UK zoos which is quite handy.
    Don't rush over to try and see them yet, they are settling in well but a quote from someone show was there today

    I'll keep you informed when I see any news (y)

    Super sequence Russ
    Hope to visit Highland Wildlife Park, a pair of resident polar bears produced a female cub, which was born in December last year.

    - Many thanks, Gary - I've seen photos of that female cub, so I'm sure you'll enjoy the experience :)
    - the 4 Polars at YWP are all male, so no chance of such a photo session down here in Yorkshire :(
