Yesterday we got some news of a fisherman reporting that he had seen Walawe Raja a week or so ago , on the Eastern side of the park, in an area called Panahaduwa and Galapaya . Now this is exactly OPPOSITE to the Dahaiyyagala corridor which is situated on the Western…side of the park, where we began our search !!!
How reliable the Fisherman is, we cannot say, and now we are trying to locate the guy. He is supposed to have come to Colombo looking for some work!!
All the same, the team is are going to urgently conduct a recce’ in the area tomorrow…let’s keep our fingers crossed.
