I got covered in mosquito bites (as I always do) and my hair resembled that of Aunt Sallys and was so uncontrolable with the heat and moisture, even a bucketful of "Frizz-Eze" wouldnt have solved the problem!
The heat/humidity presented a few problems, it was baking hot (35 degrees plus) by 9am and was still around 27-30 degrees during the night, phew! Lots and lots of cold showers, swims and shady trees provided some relief. It was hard work carrying all the heavy camera gear around in that heat!

Our refreshment for the evening
One other thing we had to watch for when out birding was where we were putting our feet as a lot of local people take no trouble in using the great outdoors to do their, ermmmm, business, especially in prime birding spots such as scrub/waste land. Mind you some folk have no shame whatsover and did it quite happily by the side of the road oblivious to passers-by :)
