Teardrop on the Indian Ocean

SRI LANKA

There can be no more attractive destination in the middle of a European winter.


An abundant birdlife flourishes in a great variety of beautiful tropical habitats from palm-fringed coasts to relic patches of lowland rainforest; from the cool, mountainous tea-estates to the sun-baked lagoons of the arid southeast.


We will re-discover all these delights in an itinerary that is based upon our previous experiences plus up-to-date input from our experts on the island. In addition to the wildlife, we will learn something of the rich culture and history of the fascinating and friendly country by visiting ancient sites (often excellent for birds too).


Nature conservation has an ancient history in Sri Lanka, since King Devanampiya Tissa became a convert to Buddhism over 2,000 years ago and joyfully declared his hunting preserve a wildlife sanctuary. Now one-tenth of the island is set aside as national parks, nature reserves and other sanctuaries. There have been exciting taxonomic changes here recently, resulting in the island now having 33 endemic birds, almost all of which we should find.


Many others from northern climes visit the country during November to March, so we can be sure of both an avian and cultural feast.


We have been fortunate in obtaining the services of Deepal Warakagoda, the country's foremost ornithological guide (and author of the Field Guide to the Birds of Sri Lanka), who led our last eight holidays.
