Bright sunny days seem to be a premium in the UK of late, so it was a real pleasure to have a holiday in Sri Lanka during early February, and miss the snow and freezing conditions at home. Although we did get some wet days there, the light was always good, making photography a pleasure rather than a battle with the elements! Here are a few selected images from the trip, taken with either a Canon EOS 7D and 100-400mm zoom, or a 1D Mk IV and 500mm F4.

White-throated Kingfisher (Halcyon smyrnensis).

Spot-billed Pelican (Pelicanus philippensis).

Red-wattled Lapwing (Vanellus indicus).

Great Thick-knee (Esacus recurvirostris).

Orange-breasted Green Pigeon (Treron bicinctus).

Black-shouldered (-winged) Kite (Elanus caeruleus).

Sri Lanka is a superb place for a wildlife holiday. More images to follow.
