I saw my first and only Southern Antpipit there, its enchanting song filling the forest gloom. We were also surprised and delighted to come across one of the re-introduced Black-fronted Piping Guans. The site has also been selected as a release site for Red-billed Curassows. Both species are still sadly hunted and so we hope these populations will fare better than the unprotected ones.

|Never a dull moment in Nick and Raquel's company, (apologies for the |
rather unfortunate position of the flower in front of Raquel's face).
