Went out with John and family to Bannerghatta zoo and safari park. Safari a little disappointing - tigers were fantastic but lions more than a just a little scrawny and that was it. Zoo meanwhile a real pleasure to visit and walk around. Big elephants and a baby, big snakes, hippos, panthers, bears and so on, all presumably quite happy in the heat and space. Surprising English creatures showed up too - pigeons from Trafalgar Square, geese from any farmyard and probably sparrows somewhere about as well.
