One of the joys of India is that wildlife still lives cheek-by-jowl with a huge human population.
Indian grass mantis (Schizocephala bicornis), never noticed these guys before but they were quite common at Ranthambore this year.
Naked-rumped tomb bat, ticking bats has given the cultural days of many tours a whole new focus. We found two species of tomb bat at Fatehpur Sikri this year.
I really unblocked ibisbill as a tour bogey bird this year. One in China was swiftly followed by five on this trip. An amazing total that included two we found inside Corbett.
