Thanks to unavailability of desired accommodation at Yosemite, a tour Yellowstone & Grand Teton National Park happened! & obviously the Yellowstone part of the tour was the most awaited! We did have some ‘weathery’ worries but nature does throw up surprises in its own way.. very beautiful & pleasant surprises! Read more
The winter has arrived and so have the migratory birds. A quick bird-watching excursion to Akshi beach resulted in observing some lovely bird species which included four lifers – Great Knots, Bar-tailed Godwit, Dunlin and Caspian Gulls. Some other key highlights were the Terek & Curlew Sandpipers, Whimbrel, Whiskered Terns and Ruddy Turnstones. Read more
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.
