Bharatpur hasn’t disappointed….we saw so many birds that were new to me, and the day was studded with highlights….I must thank Geetanjali for this lovely trip. I have so many photos, that I can’t post with this slow net connection (yes, I’ve pinched KM’s Reliance card again)….and will probably delete most of them by the time I get home….
When any member of this egroup changes an email id, there is NO way I,as the moderator, can know about it, unless informed about it. Don’t send me an email saying, “X’s email id has changed, and he isn’t getting the egroup mail any more, why haven’t you subscribed him on the new email id?” How on earth am I to know that he has a new email id, leave alone what it is?
We’d specifically booked by the am flight to Delhi (which meant leaving home at 4am) to ensure that we could drive down to Bharatpur and do an evening birding session…alas, the best-laid plans of mice and men!
We’ve been spending a lot of time at a neighbour’s wedding festivities.
…is always fraught with difficulties. One can never really visualize, sitting in one set of atmospheric conditions, how cold or hot it will be in the other place. The pleasant chill of Bangalore is something I don’t even consider as winter, so I tend not to pack really warm clothes at all…then I have to remind myself how it will be in the open forest, and in the foothills of the Himalaya…and say, yes, I must take my jacket and shawls…warm socks…etc, etc, etc
