Walking from Fernhill, Ooty to Lovedale

Tea estates, stopped by reserve forest areas

The red-cheeked bulbul called even with its' beak full!

The spotted dove called out to its mate in the next tree, eyeballing us all the time.


Huge flocks of sparrows all around.

A blackbird!  My first.  Called so sweetly.  Could not imagine it being baked in a pie!

Lovedale station - memories of Moondram Pirai

The Mountain Railway chugged in

Garden flowers




Tree flowers....
Two sparrows in the bush...

A hoopoe was busy with breakfast in the meadows

The jungle myna was ready for lunch

The bees, too busy to bother us

Farmlands and reforested lands

More tree flowers


Pied bushchats, everywhere
