My favourite birds are owls and I can only dream of taking pictures as stunning as the Barn Owl and Owlets.

I think you will have passed everyone else's total before the end of the week! The quality is fabulous.

After this excessive spurt I'll be returning to sleep mode for a while. It's just that if I don't get them done straight away I struggle to make time.

#200 Egyptian Vulture (Neophron percnopterus)

I figure if I'm going to sneak in an EBC it may as well be my 200th. It was just too far away.

A very worthy EBC for 200. The committee have unanimously elected you to the EBC Club.

Thanks for the invite to Satapur next year.

Well, I figure it's easier if you tell me what the birds are when we see them than having to correct them after I've posted. :P

So come on guys and girls, let's make 2019 the year of Big Year in India. 

The birding is both challenging and rewarding. 

The food is yummy and not too spicy at all.

And there are tigers in the forest, so don't go walking off looking for owls after dark.

you've powered past 200 with some quality photos, including a work of art with the skimmers drawing a  line! perhaps you've made a case for India over the Gambia? :)

From a wildlife point of view that India trip wins hands down over The Gambia but regrettably not for me as Claire would have little interest ( and the single supplement is rather high too!) . In the words of Rod Stewart " don't push your luck too far"!

Divorce would be far too costly!

Well, I reckon you have definitely lived up to the title of your thread, both in numbers and in sustained exceptional quality.

 

But what a sighting to reach the 200 on! Great stuff Martin!

Thanks @Peter Connan it gets harder from here on. But I still have 8 months to go so I should be able to add a few more.
