Sri Lanka

In November Lisa and I went to Sri Lanka for an 18 day trip focusing on some of the harder to see mammals and birds found in the country. We booked through Naturetrek and had a superb local ground agent of Baurs. The Baurs guides and driver were absolutely brilliant and I would recommend them to anyone thinking of visiting the country for any type of wildlife trip. In all we saw c. 194 species of birds including 26 endemics, c. 32 species of mammals. A selection of photos below.
