Sri Lanka day 3

Up at 5 am to go on a bird trail just the two of us. Some swifts nesting.

The guide was very informative. The highlight was the catamaran on the lake. We even saw a monkey in the trees. Some of the birds we saw.


Then we went to visit a local lady Nanda who showed us how she survived. She was 60yrs old husband deceased as land polluted so water causes lots of kidney disease.

The farmers sleep in tree houses at night so they can keep elephants off their crops

The lady is keeping the water buffalo off her crops. The cattle egret also feeding off bugs from cattle
