New Trip Report – Sri Lanka

  1. Matt Strimas-Mackey 5 years ago

    These trip reports from Jason Woolgar are awesome! Always great pictures, useful details, and impressive species lists! I hate to be critical but, Jason, if you’re listening, I think it would be valuable if you formatted these a bit more to include paragraphs, headings, etc. The long strings of small, identically formatted text can be hard to read.

    Thanks Matt, glad that you like the content. I know what you mean about the text and I always use paragraphs elsewhere. However, the paragraph spacing makes it very difficult to set the photographs easily and limits where and how I can use pictures. I am sure that there is a fairly easy solution, but anyone who knows me, will also know that I have about as good a grasp of this type of technology as the mammals I spend so long searching for!

    A great trip!
    If you don’t want to break the text into paragraphs, another option is to highlight species names with bold font and location names with bold+italics or bold+underlined.

      Thanks Vladimir and yes, it was a lot of fun and Sri Lanka is one of the best places to see a large number of mammals fairly easily. I have actually tried some of those suggestions previously, as well as a few other variations, but they tend to make the reports look more like scientific journals, which is the last thing that I want. I will look again at the format when I return from Estonia in May, as I am visiting the same area where Cheryl recently saw her lynx, just on the extremely unlikely chance that lightning will strike twice!

        Good luck, and watch (or, rather, listen) for Northern birch mice – Estonia still has them and they should be very active in May in open forests with tall herbs on the ground.
