Goa pix

A selection of pictures from our week in Goa. Most of these shots were taken from the balcony of the Beira Mar hotel, thats how easy the birding was.

Rose-coloured Starling

Marsh Harrier

Painted Snipe

Purple Ron

Pintail Snipe. I found these much easier to i.d in flight than from views like this

See what I mean

Clamorous Reed Warbler

Blue-tailed Bee Eater

Cinammon Bittern

Forest Wagtail at Molem

Little Green Bee Eater

Blue-capped Rock Thrush at Bondla

Brown Wood Owl at Saligao spring

Drinking fresh coconut milk, infinitely better than the stuff you can get out of 'fresh' coconut from Asda.

How we spent the vast majority of the week, drinking Kingfisher on the beach!!!

Lovely pictures! Especially the bittern (weird angle)
