NEPAL 8-17th JANUARY 1999 -- part three
Here is the third in a series of photographs, taken by Robert Wincup, during a Naturetrek birding tour of Nepal
During the tour 262 bird species and 11 species of mammal were recorded.
These included Leopard Panthera pardus and Gangetic River Dolphin Platanista gangetica.
Internal flights made were via Buddha Air, but you could choose Yeti Airlines!
Birding from a comfy chair at the tented camp at Koshi. This should make any Lounge Lizard feel at home! Indian Flying Foxes, Pteropus giganteus, were an impressive sight at Biratnagar. A male Oriental Magpie Robin, Copsychus saularis. A very smart Verditer Flycatcher, Eumyias thalassina. The black lores indicate that it is a male. Above and to the left are two views taken at Koshi Tappu.
