This trip was due long time; and we finally started off for Tamhini ghats on Sunday at around 7:30 AM from Pune. The weather in Pune seemed to be overcast and sunny for most of the times; however we still hoped to get some rains at Tamhini. Another reason to go to Tamhini was to see the colourful Oriental Dwarf Kingfisher. As soon as we crossed Paud, we could see the lovely green paddy field all along the way. It did seem the area had got some rain in last couple of days. We stopped at couple of places to take some shots of swallows and black drongos. Read more
Seems like I am getting addicted to birding with every passing day. This time it was an early morning trip to Kavdi Pat (On Pune- Solapur Highway – 28KM from Pimple Saudagar, Pune). I know its not the season but that’s the advantage of being near to these places.. one can make a trip once a month. Thanks to Sachin & Zafar for making it early morning :D.
If someone is planning a trip to Kavdi Pat, make sure you take the left after 500 meters once you cross the toll (Immediately after Manali Resort) and follow the road till dead end. Read more
