On The Cheap ?

Out for a bit of a 'trial and error' by going to the lower reaches of the Chambal River, to see if you can get Indian Skimmer on the cheap... and you can't. The boat was costing me ten quid an hour and by the time I’d got far enough up river and away from any disturbance, it had cost me 50 quid! And all for some very distant views of 5 Skimmers.
The rest of the birding was OK ish, with 3 Egyptian Vultures, 300 Bar-headed Geese, 250 Ruddy Shelduck and lots of River Lapwings and Black-winged Stilts. And several Gharials and Marsh Mugger Crocodiles of course, in all sizes.
