NORTHERN INDIA ALBUM

 

Here are some great pictures from Roger Gee who was on this year's northern India trip.

Asian Green Bee-eaters were the default Bee-eater.

 

This perched Crested Hawk Eagle, a split from Changeable Hawk-eagle gave great views.

 

We saw this Booted Eagle, at Sultanpur, fly in and take the Moorhen which was just at the water's edge.

Greater Flamingos are always good to see, especially at fairly close range.

 

Hard-shell Turtles on the Chambal River.

 

We had some great views of Hoopoes.

 

The Brahminy Starling is a superb looking bird at close range.

 

Ring-necked Parakeets are almost as common in North India as Richmond Park!

 

This Wire-tailed Swallow posed beautifully for us by the Chambal River.

 

Rhesus Macaque with a stolen lunch item!

 

These two Brown Hawk Owls were found by our guide at Kanha.

 

The Black-faced Langurs are not shy but more wary than the macaques... they are no trouble!

 

Indian Rollers were seen most days.

 

We had fantastic views of Tiger at Kanha.

 

Views don't get much better than this!

 

Black-backed Jackals were fairly common at Kanha and Bharatpur.

 

Indian Thick-knee is a split from Eurasian Thick-knee.
