Ranthambhore waders

Stone-curlew : We had just stopped under a tree for shade and standing
unconcerned right next to our Gypsy was this beautiful bird!  

Great Thick-knee : On eggs in 40 degrees of heat,
keeping them cool rather than warm I suspect! 
Greater Painted Snipe : Like phalaropes there is reverse sexual dimorphism,
the female being larger and more colourful. Good views at different sites,
birds not at all secretive as can be seen.
