First Birds at Puttenahalli Lake

The Puttenahalli lake is ready and waiting for the rains. Hopefully, by the end of the year the level would have risen. Even the little water it has attracts birds. I spotted lapwings, moor hens, snake birds (darters) and of course the pond herons and a few small ones that almost miss the eye. Fellow Trustee Prasanna will be able to identify them.
