The High Fliers......

Birding at Veer Dam.... 

These Bar-headed Geese migrate all the way over the Himalayas from Siberia to their wintering grounds in the Indian subcontinent...

The Kentish Plover

Ashy crowned Sparrow Lark

A trio of Green Bee eaters


Spot billed Ducks


The most interesting of them all.... a Marsh Harrier (f) quietly biding it's time to prey on some of the small plovers and wagtails/larks.
