That just about sums up the first day in Goa,not bad for starters.I had the name of a local guide and contacted him that evening to enquire if he was going out next day,our luck was in and we would be picked up at 0625,next morning so after a superb chicken tandoori dinner and a couple of Kingfisher lagers it was an early night.
We were picked up by Lloyd Fernandes on the dot and were joined at the next pick up by John Clements,Richard Smith and Tony Greenland,small world these days.
Panjim Beach was our first destination where the highlights were in no particular order Heuglins gull,Pallas`s gull,Lesser crested tern,Small pratincole,Bay backed shrike,and Paddyfield pipit.
On the way back we stopped off at some paddy fields where we added Open Billed Stork,Great Spotted Eagle and Bonellis Eagle
Thats the day in a nutshell it just remains to say that it was an excellent day and not all hard work!
WHAT HAVE THEY SPOTTED NOW?
I have now got blogger fatigue so you`ll have to wait for the rest ,bye for now.
