Excellent news that the calf is a girl, everyone thought so yesterday but couldn't be absolutely certain.

Nayan is being a little terror by all accounts.

Photo from yesterday attached.

New baby @ Chester Zoo
Old 25-01-2011

Saw the new baby elephant at Chester Zoo yesterday. We were there at the end of the day and all the elephants came out to eat, including the newborn. Amazing! Here's a photo.... (sorry about the red-eye)

Had to reduce the picture a lot in size / resolution to come in under the attachment file size limit....

great news indeed - and SMR - when I left the zoo on saturday you said you were going home - I didn't know you'd taken up that spare bunk in the Ellie house to be there for the birth

nice shot too

may just have to pop in before the members lecture on saturday now

You mean you didn't realise he does actually live in the elephant house?

I was mistakenly credited as "visitor" today, when "resident" is probably more appropriate!

Fingers crossed that the weather stays mild, if it does the herd will be out on the paddock later in the week and the photo ops will be much improved. It might distract Nayan for a while too.
