Goa Trip Photos Online

Images taken during my Goa trip in Feb 2011 are now online here.

Here's a couple of my favourites:

Purple-rumped Sunbird

Bay-backed Shrike

All photos were taken with a Canon 7D + Canon 100-400mm F4.5-5.6 IS USM Zoom and processed from RAW files in Adobe Lightroom 3.

Goan Surprise!

I'm busy working through my photos (mainly deleting) from my Goa trip and I just came across a bird I took a distant shot of - it's a bird I've always missed in Goa before and is like rocking horse shit over there - a Wryneck!

Garden springs to life

Frogs thrashing around in the pond, a Small Tortoiseshell Butterfly on the decking and a Dotted Border in the moth trap this morning. 11 deg C last night - quite a contrast to last year when it was -5 deg C!

Goa Tip Report

Cattle Egret at Morjim Beach

Just got back from Goa, working through photos and tallying species count which was somewhere around 220. A great place for birds but plastic rubbish is everywhere!

More to follow........
