♫♫ Sri Lanka Safari - Yala National Park ♫♫

Yala combines a strict nature reserve with a national park. Divided into 5 blocks, the park has a protected area of nearly 130,000 hectares of land consisting of light forests, scrubs, grasslands, tanks and lagoons. Two blocks are currently opened to the public.

Situated in Sri Lanka’s south-east hugging the panoramic Indian Ocean, Yala was designated a wildlife sanctuary in 1900 and was designated a national park in 1938. Ironically, the park was initially used as a hunting ground for the elite under British rule. Yala is home to 44 varieties of mammal and 215 bird species. Among its more famous residents are the world’s biggest concentration of leopards, majestic elephants, sloth bears, sambars, jackals, spotted dear, peacocks, and crocodiles.

Seriously? So what are these birds called?

They look like cormorants to me, Camellia smile

Camellia Staab Replied to Björn Roose 6 days, 3 hours ago

Had to look up cormorants because they are definitely not familiar to me.

Really ? They are pretty common in Europe, but apparently you'll find them only on the east coast in the USA.
