Grass Snakes

We were lucky to see these two mating, we had never seen this before in the wild.


We had 3 sightings today in the sunshine, though they were quite quick and active, managed to capture this one as it skulked through the heath


We saw a couple of these

Brown Breasted Flycatcher

This cute little bird was quite undisturbed by us. It is a similar bird to the Asian Brown Flycatcher, however this species has a totally pale lower mandible but the Brown one has only a pale base to the lower mandible

White Faced Langur Monkeys

These were very confiding and happy to take food from us

Flameback Woodpecker

This woodpecker was very high up so cropped images.

Jungle Minah

These were seen regularly both in small and large flocks
