January 22nd -- 8th February 2010

We have had a marvelous time with you on our tour, you have taken so much time & trouble to arrange. Everything was perfect for us made us feel very special. The accommodation you recommended for us has been ideal and the welcome and hospitality have been first class, and we haven't had to worry about a thing. Your guiding has been excellent and your knowledge of the calls & habitats as well as excellent identification skills has been first rate. Birdwise, it has been really good to see almost all of the endemics awailable. It has been particularly good to have your expertise and & patience to get both of us and every bird with excellent sightings. We have seen approximately 200 species with xxxxx and over 50 of these have been like lifetime lists for us. You have also now taken us over the 3000 birds milestone!
We were so pleased to see the Serendib Scopes Owl on the 2nd last day. What a wonderful bird, really sums up Sinharaja along with other wonderful mixed flocks such as the Red faced Malkoha, Malabar Trogan, White faced Starling, etc. all in the one eyeful!
Its also been lovely to enjoy your company and conversations on the wide range of topics, politics, religion, philosophy, culture, education and so on. You have made this a wonderful trip for us and kept us entertained through out, and even surprised us at Sinharaja by bringing out your guitar for some musical entertainment!
All the arrangement for the holiday have been excellent due to your care and attention. The transport has been excellent too, with excellent driving with Mr. Jayawardana who has looked after us with great skill and excellent reflexes on the roads!
In short, everything was fabulous. It's been a busy trip taking seven different locations and lots of early starts but the pace has suited us well and the time has really flown by. I can't believe our tour is almost over! We can now spend our last few nights in Ranweli reflecting last two weeks and all the experiences that we have had together. We will be dreaming about Sri Lanka for a long time now!
We would recommend a trip with you to anyone coming to Sri Lanka and look forward to meeting up with you some time when you are over in the UK for the Birdfair. Thank you for everything Jith! We had a great time.

All the best wishes and regards

David and Sarah Blair
Lancashire, UK
