After watching a few birds do their thing high in the jungle canopy and envying the size of the lens one of the 'twitchers' had attached to his camera, we again saw elephants on the other bank.

        ... normal, but we were lucky enough to see a mangrove snake black with yellow rings, quite striking- it was only a metre or so long, but quite thick.
