Topslip Dipping...

Spent the morning at Topslip in a vain pursuit of Wynaad Laughingthrush, but we did see a number of good birds such as Malabar Trogon, White-bellied Treepie, Grey Junglefowl, Rufous Babbler, Rufous-bellied Eagle, Oriental Honey Buzzard and Chestnut-headed Bee-eater etc.

To be honest I really didn't feel that we had much of a chance finding the laughingthrush, and didn't get positive vibes from the local guides, so another dip with this species. But there must be other places to find it right...?

Anyway, after lunch we drove for over 5 hours to Ooty and a superb hotel in the town for a 2 night stay.
