Jamnagar, a birding hot-spot is not only great for observing the mesmerizing bird life but also serves as a great opportunity for photographers to compose incredible images at close distance. Our tour is led by Vipul Ramanuj, a biodiversity expert with special interest in herpeto-fauna and wildlife photography. Being a regional expert and having spent several years studying and photographing the habitat and the wildlife, Vipul will share his knowledge of this region with the participants.
During this trip, we will be visiting 5 different areas Khijadia Bird Sanctuary, Marine National Park, Dhichda, Balachadi and Lakhota Lake, each having their own specialty in terms of habitat and chances of sighting avid bird as well as marine life. Birding here is bound to leave one euphoric with the sheer number of waterfowl present. With the wetlands carpeted pink by large flocks of Lesser Flamingos, Pelicans swimming in perfect formation as they prepare to nose-dive for the catch of the day along with Ducks, Storks, Gulls, Geese and other Waders ambling through the water all together create an exclusive kaleidoscope of birds.
Apart from the resident and migratory birds, chances of sighting rare birds like Indian Skimmer, Crab Plover, Eurasian Oystercatcher, Ruddy Turnstone are in plenty. Add to these, watching /photographing the live synchronized acrobatics performance by millions of Rosy Starlings at Lakhota Lake is definitely an event that ensures a complete birding experience. While exploring the riches of Jamnagar we will not only be learning about various bird species and their identification but also practice various ways to overcome challenging field conditions faced by photographers to get that perfect shot. Here you will have time, ample time to compose images and boost your creativity.
