3rd Sunday outing of the Bird Watchers Field Club, 201111

November 21, 2011

It was a very enjoyable ramble over the slopes and through the scrub jungle (rather prickly at times, and on two occasions, very muddy as we waded through muddy streams). The location was Kasavanakunte, in the Bannerghatta forest area:
