Our Visit to Pulicat Lake!

.
We had visited Pulicat lake last December when we went to watch the Rocket launch at Sri Harikota.  It is not as beautiful as Vedanthaangal though, still, OK. And we went there before the actual birding season started.  In Feb. March, we could have seen the babies...

Now, have a look at the limited no. of birds we saw on that day:

Painted storks



Reflection of the clouds!

Lovely shots on birds and the scenic lake! I liked the reflections in first and last image. I have been to Pulicat and visited one of the islands through the boat... Pulicat is famous for sighting flamingos

JEEVAN: Thanks for the first comment, Jeevan! We didn't plan to visit this place. One day we must do that and visit the island. I have read that flamingos come there!

Did you go to any islands on the boat? On the day I went, boating was not allowed due to some accident. But I got a good look at the Dutch monuments and an old Temple, which are generally closed to public. Not sure if they have opened it now. For some reason, I didn't like this place (and its people) much.

SHAIL MOHAN: Thank you, Shail!


DESTINATION INFINITY: It was not a planned visit. It was on the way and we stopped for half an hour or so and had a look at the birds. I didn't know about the Dutch monuments. Must visit again. As I said, it is not as beautiful as Vedanthaangal.


LOCO MENTE: Thank you, Loco Mente!


sm: Thank you, sm!
