We are all back home. I just wanted to let you know that our trip with Sherab was GREAT !!!

We recorded 315+ species of birds including 45 lifers for me, more than I expected!! For the rest of the group, most species were actually new.

Everything went very well, smoothly indeed, with nothing wrong to report. Sherab is a very good guide knowing his birds always ready to find more and never reluctant to help. The cooking team always prepared great meals in sometimes in difficult conditions. The car was very good too as well as our driver Suba! At last, I was amazed by the high standard of hotels that you provided with hot water and electricity everywhere!!!!

You and your team did a tremendously good job from A to Z. I can only recommend you to other birders and I will try to visit again with another group probably in 2017 (I’ll send you less e-mails with questions by then…).

Just keep on doing such a good work in your fascinating country!! May God or Buddha or whatever divinity and your smiling and friendly Bhutanese people maintain it as pristine as it still is today!! I wish there were many more such intelligent and wisely nature conservation-minded people as you …

Thanks a lot again!!
