With small backpacks and photography gears, we started off for Bhigwan on a sunny afternoon. This time, I was travelling with a group called "TravelEarth360." After reaching our homestay and having the lunch consisting local delicacies, we left for our evening boat ride. All fish lovers, Bhigwan has a variety of fresh water fishes to munch on! And trust me, the local ladies cook deliciously! The landscape with boats, reflections and the gradually setting big ball of fire looked scenic! The innumerable, colourful chirpy birds around added to the picturesque scenery. There were people having keen interest in birding. Every edge was strikingly photogenic. Those were the best reflections I swear! The crystal greenish waters in the lake glittered as the golden rays of the setting sun fell on them. The abendrot skies looked mystical!
During this ride, we gotta watch gulls in action in big flocks, ospreys, bar headed geese, ruddy shelducks, black winged stilts, grey herons, great cormorants and American coots. Also, the cute collared Pratincole caught everybody's eye.
Post the evening ride, we were served dinner followed by which we left for a short night trail (5-6 km from the homestay). Within no time during the trail, we spotted the nightjar. Soon, we also found a row of half a dozen of green bee eaters relaxing cosily on a twig, totally camouflaged with the leaves. Unexpectedly, we also saw a fluffy Robin peeping out of its tiny dwelling hardly for a few seconds.
One can also find a variety of reptiles.
We called it a day after few of us went for a stroll post the trail for star gazing and photography experiments.
