Sri Lanka Non-Passerines 25.2.2017

A few of the non-passerines seen in Yala National Park on 25th February. We were lucky to catch up with a single Black-necked Stork on a distant pond while dipping on a Leopard in the morning. This is a very rare species now in Sri Lanka and Yala is the main site for them. A nice selection of waders and other storks also seen during the day including the impressive Great Thick-knee.
