This time we were in two very cmfortable mini buses and we soon stopped to walk over the River Ganges.
Next morning out early for some extra birding practise and immediately were confronted by some KALIJ PHEASANTS on the road,it was still quite dark but with ISO settings straining managed this:-
After two days in the Himalayan foothills it was time to go and as they say it was all downhill from here.Incidentally the No 1 driver had been told to reign himself in and was now driving more sensibly.
So the last leg of our epic journey was beginning and we were soon at Corbett for the final three days before returning to Delhi.
Our first afternoon here was spent in the garden and then on the river looking for some very interesting birds.
so I am quite pleased with the results of my tweakings.
Saturday 15th November,our first safari in Corbett National Park was going to be a day to remember
A BRILLIANT EXPERIENCE -A BIG THANKYOU TO OUR DRIVER AND GUIDE FOR GETTING US INTO SUCH A GOOD POSITION.
Well after that it was all an anti climax but a few more birds to finish with
The last full day started with a pre dawn elephant safari across the river and back which turned out to be great fun
We were so lucky to have an Indian guide with us throughout the tour,he was invaluable and got us through so many potentially tricky situations without a hitch and his knowledge of Indian wildlife was amazing.His name was Rashan and here he is-he knew just about everyone and just loved having his photo taken-
I will soon put together a butterfly and dragonfly blog,hope you have enjoyed the trip and I haven`t bored you too much.
