Carambolim lake is situated just behind the Karmali Railway station in Old Goa. It is a wetland ecosystem hosting a number of wintering visitors as well as some resident birds.

At the end of the promenade, is a tree where some spotted owls roost. The locals very enthusiastically helped us spot them.
As we stepped onto the dirt track on the Eastern side, we saw blue tailed bee eaters, plenty of red whiskered and red vented bulbuls, small green bee eaters, ioras, and whistling teals and cotton teals in the water alongside. Further up, we saw many golden backed woodpeckers but deep in the shade of the tree cover, we were unable to get pictures.
All in all, we were satisfied with the morning's results.
