The total number of species encountered was 240 including 3 that were heard but not seen.  The total number of “lifers” seen was 34 (including Streaked Weaver which I am now convinced I did not see in 2013).  However it would be 37 if I was to include the maybe dubious sightings – Sykes`s Warbler, Saunders`s Tern and Greater Painted Snipe.  Red-faced Malkoha I am convinced I saw in 2013 and is consequently a confirmation as is Ashy Prinia.  All of the 33 endemics (one more pending) were seen except Chestnut-backed Owlet which was heard but not seen.  Best birds – Eyebrowed Thrush, Black Noddy, Serendib Scops Owl, Sri Lanka Whistling Thrush, Black-necked Stork

After having explored the birds of India on several occasions, the endemic species of Sri Lanka finally called for me. I ended up seeing all of them and many other bird species and some great mammals. I can absolutely recommend this beautiful island: good birds, good food, nice people and very easy to organise.
