40. Plumbeous Water Redstart

On our first day in Old Manali we went to the forest area just before you cross the bridge to old Manali and walked down to where the fence has been ripped open by the river. The river Beas runs through Manali and its beautiful. I saw this bird there and tried to get a good shot but it kept flying away. Even when I did the light was not good enough and so didn't get a very clear picture.
I went down there the next day and the next and tried to get shots but not much luck. You can see them every evening by the river, on the rocks and cleaning up close to the banks. They seem so delicate and yet will perch on rocks with water gushing very close to their feet.
