Professional guide - Southern area ? (1 Viewer)

I will be in Sri Lanka for two weeks, fist half of February, visiting various places (Ella, Horton, Udawalawe, Mirissa) in a family vacation. I'll spend as much time birding as I reasonably can, and I think I could use some assistance from a local bird guide. Particularly since I plan to take a one-day trip to Sinharaja, perhaps to other sites (like Bundala or maybe Kalametiya).
Can anyone recommend a professional guide in the area ?
Thanks in advance.

In Sinharaja, I'd recommend either getting an organised guide (I've heard good things about Walk with Jith) or alternatively make your own way there (early) and get a guide at the HQ. If you go down this route, I'd recommend asking for Wasante, he was very good and knew where to look for some of the tricky species, as well as being very familiar with all calls etc.
