Agonda beach, Goa

Ok, so we've been back a few months now, but - after more than 200 posts from our round-the-world extravaganza (mostly between May 2011 and March 2012 in the side menu, if you've a few weeks to kill) - I'm almost done; well, on here at least - there'll be more in other shapes and forms to come.

Here's more from the immediate area surrounding our guest house on Agonda beach in south Goa - an idyllic spot which proved tricky to move from (especially with so much good birding within five minutes of our room). We eventually did, however, and a wonderful day in Cotigao (a superb reserve about a half-hour from Agonda) will feature here anon.
