Photo Meet at Village Shinay, Kachchh

Second Photo-meet (29-12-2008,Sunday)

Second photo-meet was arranged at Shinai Lake at the outskirt of Village Shinai. Ajay was not feeling well and was not able to join.

The lake hosted good variety of water birds. It took some time for us and birds to get adjusted with the presence of each other. Among the birds spotted , we were able to identify a few. Like (1) Large Egret (2) Little Egret (2) Black Winged Stilt (a common water-bird) (3) White Pelican (4) River Tern (5) Little Cormorant (6) Common Coots (7) Pond Heron or Paddy Bird ( 8) Green Bee Eater (9) Pied Kingfishere. There were many which we were unable to identify/click.

The lake could be very good spot for bird watching and photography with sufficient gears and patience. There is old abandoned circuit house at the shore of the lake. However, with some interest from concerned authorities could be developed as tourist place.
