Our 3rd visit to wonderful Goa. Below are lots and lots of photographs, it may take a while to scroll down to view them all!! Click on each pic for larger view! It is an amazing place to visit, wonderful people, fabulous food and awesome and very varied Wildlife. Our base (as always) was Dona Paula. We tend to avoid tourist areas (apart from the major birding sites) prefering to stay here as you can spend more time with the locals, join in their village life(we were invited to many of the local's houses for tea!!!) and see the "real" Goa. Brilliant!!! Here are Mandy and Mick out birding! :) Most of our wildlife watching was done around Dona Paula, Carambolim Lake, Backwoods and Bondla. Photography was quite a challenge at times as the sun tended to be extremely bright and in the wrong place(!) or the birds were high in the canopy. Still we got a lot of pleasure from just observing all the amazing birds and creatures. Can't wait to go back!
