Last day of July. 31.7.2013

Today i went to oldest zoo in Finland with Sarina and her sister. Korkeasaari is one of those zoos witch raise endangered animals very successfully. For example, over one hundred Snow Leopard have born here.
Today we had nice few hours there watching Asian Lions, Snow Leopards, Siberian Tiger, Bactrian Camels and many other animals. Also some wild animals around, mostly birds. I had two White-winged Crosbills, fourteen Great-spotted Woodpecker, 180 Barnacle Goose and 17 Lesser-black backed Gull.
