Despite some attacks by the Old Man Winter Miss Spring has definitely won the battle and arrived in the Yorkshire Wildlife Park.

Sisu is still sleeping and letting the early morning sun rays warm his fur.

Nobby thought it was time for Sisu to wake up and welcome a new day.

Come on, Sisu! Rise and shine!

Some morning exercises are, of course, on the schedule.

Some friendly wrestling – or is this perhaps a new nose-to-nose dance? 🙂

Nobby and Sisu are jolly good fellows.

Hamish is wondering where Luka is hiding.

Hello, Luka! Why don’t you come and admire the new colour of my fur?

Hamish

Hello Hamish! Here I am but let me tell you that my fur has the most trendy colour in this park! I call it the ‘ultimate shade of white’. How do you like it?

Nobby always finds time to play in the water.

Don’t I look like a King wearing this red cape?

Do you recognize me now?

After all the swimming and playing Nobby decided it was time to do some gardening. He started by moving a flower pot to a better place. 🙂

Hamish and Sisu were having fun in the lake and Nobby stopped to watch them playing.

Hmmm, they seem to have bundles of fun ….

Nobby thought that looks fun

…. so why not join the youngsters?

Nobby why not join the young ones

All three in the water and they had feathered cheer leaders, too. 🙂

    I am always amazed at these gorgeous enclosures.

    Any bear that can live there is a lucky bear.

  3. Der Modetrend von Luka toppt natürlich alle anderen Fellkreationen – super.
    Tolle Bilder von vier fröhlichen Baeren, die im Yorkshire Wildlife Park ein paradiesisches Bärenrefugium haben.

    Es ist toll, dass SISU, der solange alleine war, nun in bäriger Gesellschaft ist und sich mit allen gut versteht. Ein kleines Bad in Gesellschaft und mit schönem Spielzeug ist unterhaltsam und wenn dann noch die Möwen als Cheerleaders agieren, lässt der Tag keine Wünsche mehr offen.

    Thank you very much, dear Sheila!

    Herzliche Grüße an dich Mervi für den erheiternden Text!

  4. Dear Sheila, dear Mervi!
    The boys enjoy the life. The can change from polar bear to the brown bear. They can swim, wrest, dance and play.

  5. Dear Sheila and Mervi!
    Thank you for these wonderful and most enjoyable photos of the polar bear gang in Yorkshire with again funny and appropriate captions. It is quite obvious that the boys are enjoying their time together and are friendly and relaxed with each other.
    I particularly loved the following photos: the first one of Sisu sleeping peacefully into the morning, to be gently woken up by Nobby in the second, the “nose to nose” dance, Hamish sitting, Luka with camouflage colouring of the fur and Nobby bathing with the red toy.
    I am happy for them that they are doing so well and are staying in this place.

    Hugs

  6. Die Jungs wissen echt wie man Spaß hat und das Leben genießt.

    Liebe Grüße, Erika

  7. Dear Mervi and Sheila
    As I am still unable to travel to Doncaster because of
    the situation with trains and hotels still being closed,
    I am very grateful for this report.
