Garganey females on 26th Dec 2013
We'd last spotted the Garganey at our lake in the winter of 2011, one of the few places, if not the only lake in the city, to where it migrated! We cannot but remember how Mr. Zafar Futehally had visited our lake twice just to see the Garganeys.
The visitors have not taken the sheen off our resident birds and we're so delighted to see more numbers of Spot-billed Ducks, at least a pair of Purple Herons, many Egrets and of course, the Common Coots and Purple Swamphens.
Three species of birds
Visit the lake and see them for yourselves!
