The Bakarpur Pond – 2

Bakarpur Pond - Bird Photography

Bird Photography

…..continued from Part-1

I spent around 2-2.5 hours at the Bakarpur Pond photographing and observing the birds and also catching attention from curious villagers crossing the road. Some even reaching out to me with questions like,

Are you from the press?

What will you do with the photographs?

What are you photographing?

And some observant ones coming forward with interesting facts like,

You should come in winters, there are plenty of bird at that time.

Early morning is the best time for observing.

Overall I really enjoyed the time spent at the pond. On a sad front, GMADA is constructing an Aerocity Housing Project around the pond due to the newly opened International Airport nearby. They are also acquiring some area of the pond for the project. I am not sure for how long will the birds continue to arrive at this place.

The birds that I photographed in my first visit to the Bakarpur Pond are :

  • Wood Sandpiper
  • Large Egret
  • Spot Billed Duck
  • Black Winged Stilt
  • Paddy Field Pipit
  • Yellow Bittern
  • Red Wattled Lapwing
