Chambal Safari Lodge (North India - Day 7)

We arrived at the Chambal Safari Lodge in time for dinner and agreed on a trial separation with our guide for the afternoon. What this amounted to was some time birding alone around the camp, seeing for example, Egyptian Vultures:

Flying foxes:

Oriental White-eye:

Red-throated Flycatcher:

Rose-ringed Parakeet, this one investigating a nest hole:

and Verditer Flycatcher:

After the birding we sat down for a cuppa on the lawn and were joined by a family from Kilburn. Jonno, the dad, promptly organised a game of cricket in which his daughter and one of the camp guides starred. I was still aching three days later but it was a lot of fun.

We joined the family for dinner later that evening and had a really good time with them before heading to bed.
