82
Notes:
Once again at the favorite hotspot. Was there to accompany Anay Tarnekar who is new to the city birding scene. The unusuals of the day were a pair of Glossy Ibis and a bunch of Bar-headed Geese. We were a little early of Raptor activity but did see the osprey from distance. The Yellow Bittern also made an appearance in a cameo role! Sad scene was a Yellow Wattled Lapwing dragging what seemed like some plastic rope from a trap... Got some good pictures of Sunbird hovering. Thankfully it seems that fishing has stopped for now...
