First Sighting

30th August 2014 at 6.11pm

  • 30th August 2014 at 6.11pm 1 Leopard between Kalagedi Bokkuwa and Thammanna Wala. N 08.35566, E 080.11540.
  • It was to the right of the road and moved in to the forest upon being detected. However fortunately for me it moved out of the forest patch again briefly permitting me to take a few photos for identification. This is my first sighting of this leopard. It’s a young female and I estimated its age to be around 2 years. I named it Thammanna Wala Female 1 ( THWF 1). (with guide Thisara)
