Bird-watching at Little Rann of Kutch & Thol Bird Sanctuary

Bird-watching at Little Rann of Kutch & Thol Bird Sanctuary

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.
