Kathmandu & Annapurna
- Leaving the village the path soon
enters the steep walled gorge. It was in this area that
we heard 8 Nepal Wren Babblers calling from different locations
and we had excellent views of a pair feeding & preening in
the undergrowth below the path close to the river....John

- This report is based on a one-month trip
to the northern sub-continent, covering well-known sites such
as Bharatpur, Ranthambhore, Ramnagar, Corbett and the Naini Tal
area in India, along with Bardia, Chitwan and the Kathmandu
Valley in Nepal. As this was my first major birding trip
to the region, the basic aim was to cover the selected sites in
depth, attempting to pick up the widest variety of species as
possible...Jos Stratford reports

and Tibetan Snowcock) and to find Ibisbill and Pied Thrush on
their breeding grounds....Moira and Graeme Wallace report.
Lowland Nepal ~ Birds and Big
- Four years of dreaming became a reality when
our local guide Shankar Tiwari welcomed us to Nepal with garlands

first birds seen were noisy House Crows in their hundreds, Rose-ringed
Parakeets and strutting Common Mynas, with Black Kites soaring
buoyantly over the city...Christopher Hall reports.
