COONOOR

posted in: Trip Report | 1

I was joined by Dr.Eash Hoskote and Dr.C.S.Nagaraj on this trip to the Nilgiris. We departed from Bangalore at around 2 a.m. and reached Coonoor by around 9 a.m. We were greeted by our close friend Nanjan Dharuman at Coonoor. We spent a few hours photographing the Black & Orange Flycatcher and the Nilgiri Flycatchers. Post lunch we headed to our hotel, The Trilian Cottages in Kotagiri. After relaxing for a couple of hours we drove to Dharuman’s estate where we had the opportunity to photograph the Blue Rock Thrush at his estate. We retired to our hotel after good dinner. The following day we reach Dharuman’s estate in search of the Kashmir Flycatcher, but we were very unlucky in not getting that. Post a delicious breakfast at Dharman’s house we departed from Kotagiri and reached Metupalayam where Dr.Eash dropped off to head towards Valparai.
During this trip we could get some images of the Nilgiri Flycacher, Black & Orange Flycatcher and of course the Blue Rock Thrush.
