Being one of our favourite bird-watching destinations, we never miss out on Little Rann of Kutch and so was the case this year as well. We got some lovely sightings of over 100 species of birds along with some nice photographic opportunities to capture species like the Short-eared Owl, Montagu’s & Pallid Harriers, Dalmatian & Great White Pelicans, Greater & Lesser Flamingos, Greater Spotted, Steppe & Eastern Imperial Eagles and the endemic Indian Wild Ass.
Being avid birders, winter is THE season we look forward to. When Wild India announced the birding trip to Little Rann of Kutch and Thol, we registered instantly as we couldn’t have asked for better company to do birding with. The Little Rann of Kutch (LRK) is world famous for the Indian Wild Ass (Khur) and hence a majority of LRK areas is declared as Wild Ass Sanctuary. More information on LRK and Indian Wild Ass at the end of the report.
Coming back to our trip, myself and Shraddha arrived at Ahmedabad early at around 6:30 AM. Our friends were already waiting for us and after some chit-chat and breakfast we finally started our journey to LRK.
