End of Lockdown

The newspapers say Boris gave a confusing message. I was not confused. I can go out for as much exercise as I like and use the car to get there. I do not need to worry about social distancing. I will meet nobody.

No more daily posting. Back to the occasional entry. I was up at 04:00 hours this morning and out for the dawn chorus. As ever these days it was a muted affair. Where are all the birds?
At least I am out.

Tiger at Bandhavgarh

38th day of lockdown. This is another slide scan so I have no exif data, but I seem to remember it was taken with the 70-210 F2.8 Canon lens, so very close. Our guide and driver had taken us to a more remote part of the park, pulled up by the side of a track and told us the tiger was heading our way. They decide this based upon the alarm calls of the other animals. After 15 minutes I was very sceptical, but they were right. Not only that but they told me it was going to lie down next to us a good minute before it did. They were a very impressive pair who knew their job well.
