  • 9th March 2014 at 4.18pm 1 Leopard at Nelum Wila. N 08.40277, E 079.98154
    I spotted fresh pugmarks from Nelum Wila sand patch towards Nelum Wila and spotted the leopard walking ahead of the vehicle close to the culvert. It was a female. As I noticed that it was quite vary I followed it keeping a distance of about 50 meters. I only managed to get a few photos as the leopard turned back to look in my direction. As the leopard approached a bend an on coming vehicle resulted in it disappearing in to the forest. This is my first sighting of this shy animal and I named it Nelum Wila Female 1 (NWF 1)
