Tomorrow, René flies back to Kathmandu for the Adventure Consultants' team celebratory dinner in the evening.  He flies out to Doha on Tuesday evening, 11th November, and arrives home on Wednesday morning, 12th November. We are, of course,  very much looking forward to having him back in the fold again.

Royal Chitwan National Park (3000 m - 8000 m)

Today's birding safari took René on a 15 km walk through  the Nepalese jungle. Amongst the 90 birds spotted were the white-throated kingfisher (alongside), the crimson sunbird (bottom left), the grey-headed canary flycatcher (bottom right) and the crested goshawk. Sadly, the longed-for pitta was elusive, as was the tiger, although there were plenty of tiger tracks to be seen. Animals seen on the walk included deer, boar and red monkey.
