Diary day 10,(2016 field trip) the plod up the road was hard, exposed and open, with paddy fields one side and swamp the other, a cluster of trees becomes an oasis in this landscape. Big beautiful Rain trees, the first had a huge bat colony, the second a shady retreat for a troupe of Langur monkeys sleeping through the heat of the day. Quiet and dosing except the youngest, playing in the branches, learning to climb. All manner of birdlife flitting past and a spectacular serpent eagle on its nest.
