Haven't added anything here for a few days as we've been away. This is the magnificent Amber Fort, a few miles outside Jaipur.

Our last full day at Bharatpur saw us heading out into local farmland looking for the Indian Coursers again, and once again they failed to co-operate! In the meantime I came across this female Pied Bushchat (unless Sumit tells me otherwise)

After well over a week of early morning starts, we decided to take a rest from birding and relax in the city of Jaipur. One of the first places we visited was Gaitore ki Chhatris, which is situated on the Jaipur-Amer road, about 7 kms from Jaipur.

 Gaitore is a site containing a number of cenotaphs for the  rulers of Jaipur. These cenotaphs are  known as "Chhatris"and are engraved with typical Rajasthani carvings. Gaitore is thought to be the mispronounced form of a Hindi phrase "Gaye ka Thor" which means "resting place of the departed souls".

Our third day at Bharatpur was brought to a wonderful close with the sight and sound of these two Sarus Cranes displaying and calling.
