The next day, however, saw another boat trip, and the last chance to grab some decent photos before we were taken back to the airport the next morning. I'm quite happy with some of these.
Greater Crested Terns - bird number 70.
So good it gets a second photo
Indian Pond Heron, full of awesome
Pair of White Bellied Sea Eagles roosting in the tallest tree in the most awkward spot for viewing. Seriously, I wasn't even certain I'd seen them until I zoomed in on the photo.

And so we said farewell to Sri Lanka, probably nevermore to return. The biodiversity is stunning, but at the moment there's little else that you can't see by staying closer to home and spending considerably less money. Still, it's a country undergoing a huge amount of rebuilding. We'll give it a few years and see.
And if we don't go back, I'll always have my nearly endemic green pigeon.
It's not bad here really
