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.

    Hi, I will soon be visiting Agra Fort, could you guide me to the Tomb Bats please?

      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
