Musical entertainment in Yorkshire

The polar bears in the Yorkshire Wildlife Park are all doing fine now that even Sisu has recovered from his injuries. Maybe some snow flakes will soon fall in Doncaster, too.

Is that a new kind of enrichment? The kids seem to have a little argument ….


Flocke (?) was taking a walk while the kids were having a lively discussion. 🙂


Soon the cub trio was in the water competing about a new toy.


I’m not sure who the winner is but he/she certainly show what even young polar bear power is.


OOOPS! Who turned out the lights?


Luka looking very white and fluffy


This day he just wanted to present his gorgeous appearance. 🙂


Hamish knows how to play with everything he finds!


Hmm, this isn’t eatable ….


…. but it’s chewable, hihihii….


Hamish is a lovely young polar bear male and maybe he will soon have a little brother or sister. Victoria has retired to her maternity den so maybe ….


Sisu looks amazingly white. He invited Nobby to play with him.


Hello Sisu! Sorry, but I’m not in a playing mood today.


Nobby sometimes is soooo boring!!


Well, I enjoy being outdoors again anyway!


Nobby decided to take a trip to the Napland. 🙂


Hello visitors! Can you hear what I hear?


Suddenly loud polar bear duetto was heard all over the park.


I hear singing. Why don’t we sing, too?


Thank you! That was very good – and very LOUD.


That’s all folks! See you soon again!

  1. Liebe Mervi,

    die gemeinsame Entdeckung des neuen Spielzeugs macht es noch interessanter und die grossen Sachen vom
    Grund des Sees koennen sich auch sehen lassen.

    Wie fein, dass es Sisu wieder gut geht und er schmerzfrei ist.
    Hamisch bereitet sich schon auf die Christbaumzeit vor und Nobby relaxed einfach nur,
    also alles so recht nach Bärenart und diie Musik der Seelöwen passt auch dazu.

    Auf den Nachwuchs von Victoria bin ich gespannt und danke Sheila und Philip fürt die schönen Fotos!

    I like your pictures and the corresponding text very much. I was pleased and I laughed.

    So now the Christmas season is also open for the bears.

    Hamisch has got the tree, Nobby is having a PowerNap, Sisu has just recovered and Luka is just looking good.
    Flocke’s family is really getting down to business. There are heated discussions about which Christmas present Bear wants to have.

    So Christmas and snow can come!

    “Like in real life…” Between siblings, there are often fights about the toys and always the other’s toy is more interesting than one’ s own. These are very funny scenes and the subtitles are to the point. One of the bear cubs was even downright “in a bucket” and I had a good laugh.
    I suspect the musical performances would take a bit of time getting used to for the ears of two-legged people.

    I’m thrilled at how well Luka looks now compared to a few months ago and it’s a pleasure to see the bears and other animals enjoying themselves.
    Thank you for these delightful pics!

    Liebe Sheila, Philip und Mervi!
    “Wie im richtigen Leben…” Unter Geschwistern gibt es oft Streit um das Spielzeug und immer ist das Spielzeug des anderen interessanter als das eigene. Das sind sehr lustige Szenen, und die Untertitel bringen es auf den Punkt. Eines der Bärenjungen war sogar regelrecht “im Eimer” und ich habe mich köstlich amĂĽsiert.
    Ich vermute, dass die musikalischen Darbietungen für die Ohren von Zweibeinern etwas gewöhnungsbedürftig sind.

    Ich bin begeistert, wie gut Luka jetzt im Vergleich zu vor ein paar Monaten aussieht, und es ist ein Vergnügen zu sehen, wie sich die Bären und anderen Tiere amüsieren.
    Vielen Dank fĂĽr diese erfreulichen Bilder!

    Liebe GrĂĽĂźe
