Birding was exceptionally good. We saw the target endemics at such close range!
This was a wonderful trip! For me the company was terrific. The stay and food (and travel) were superb.
Birding was exceptionally good. We saw the target endemics at such close range. There were so many birds that winter in the Western Ghats, and were new for me. My life list increased by 25! Your knowledge of the birds, and their calls, made it appear so easy!
It was great to see the Sholakilis and the Laughingthrushes on North and South of the Palghat gap. I had heard about the ‘sky islands’, it was good to see how a 40 km gap can make the birds different.
A non birding highlight for me was the steam locomotive and narrow gauge track at Coonoor.
Mike, it was impressive how patient you were, and how you took care of everyone and everything! I hope my work schedule allows me to do some more trips with you.
