Our afternoon safari produced a wealth of goodies including very close looks at both Blue-tailed Bee-eater and Green Bee-eater.
A pair of huge Malabar Pied Hornbills showed well perched in a dead tree.
We got very close views of several Orange-breasted Green Pigeons
And amongst the mammals we saw were Indian Elephants, Water Buffalo and a fabulous Jungle Cat.
Oh I nearly forgot the Sri Lankan Giant Squirrel in the hotel grounds
Next we move on to the highlands
