New Trip Report Red Pandas in Nepal and a couple of bats in Agra

I was in Nepal and India last month, and though it was mainly work I squeezed in a long weekend to look for Red Pandas in Nepal and a report is here, featuring a gorgeous Red Panda, a couple of interesting rodents and some Assamese Macaques, around a wonderful village.

In India I took a day trip to Agra from Delhi. Armed with advice from Matt Miller I easily found Naked-rumped Tomb Bats in the Agra Fort.

Finding a Lesser Mouse-tailed Bat was more of a challenge, though I did find this sickly looking individual which I believe is that species, rather than is larger cousin (let me know if you have an opinion!).

Not much mammal watching planned now until Sulawesi at Christmas.

      Chris they are in several rooms/areas on the main tourist routes. Hard to explain where but if you ask any of the guides hanging around the ticket booth they will take you for a few $s. Jon
