Roused before dawn fortified with tea we had piled into a minibus outside our hotel and transferred to an open-topped jeep once inside the national park. Durgesh our sharp-eyed bat-eared guide took us along trails pointing out the abundant bird life at every level peacocks strutting through the grass an owlet sitting stock still on a low branch and black drongos mobbing a buzzard in the treetops. Pausing by a river bank we saw the snouts of submerged mugger crocodiles protruding through the dark water. Turning uphill we were surprised by a bull gaur lumbering out of a thicket across our path. Also known as the Indian bison the gaur is the worlds largest bovine animal and extremely dangerous when annoyed but this one looked sweet.
