and Uttar Pradesh, India,
- We left Nainital to head back
to Delhi and on leaving the town we noticed a large number
of raptors on what looked like a rubbish tip on the left of the
road. Most of these proved to be Steppe Eagles, probably
30+.....John Kirby reports.
Park, Jaisalmer, Rajasthan
- The desert birding experience was
excellent and the Thar Desert is a definite place to recommend
to other birders, I recorded over 60 species in the desert
national park itself and only missed a couple of expected
species namely MacQueen’s Bustard and Hoopoe Lark...Paul
- The main aim of this trip was to see a tiger, which luckily we
did. Also to look for some of the harder to see species of birds
in Rajasthan. We travelled mainly by train for the first half of
the trip then succumbed to the ease and comfort of a car and driver...Stuart
North-western India Re-invented
- This report
is based on a one-month trip to North-western India. This includes
Bharatpur, Ranthambhore, Ramnagar, Corbett and Nainital. We
also visited less known Chambal River Sanctuary in Madhya/Uttar
Pradesh and Gir forest, Champaner and Rann of Kutch in Gujarat...Jerzy
Dyczkowski and Bert S report.
- Early morning saw us in Bharathpur again
but this time with a guide. After two days of birding on our own
here, someone with more knowledge of the area was needed to fill
in some gaps on our lists. We started at the nursery where we
found grey nightjars, chestnut-bellied nuthatch, yellow-footed
pigeon, orange-headed thrush, ashy drongo and fleeting glimpses
of two dusky eagle owls....Pierre van der Wielen reports.
Winter Birding in Northern
and Western India
- We had been to this part of India the year
before. Even so, out of the 310 bird species we saw this time
there were more than a hundred new birds for India, among them
95 lifers. However, there is not just birdlife to India: we enjoyed
also other wildlife, plants, landscapes, historic places, towns
and villages, and the friendly people...Robert Wynands and
Ulrike Bischler report.
