Early morning on a not so cold December morning all particpants from Bombay & Baroda arrive at Bhuj for 5 days of birding in what can be called an extraordinary birding destination. We are given a warm welcome by our Group leaders, Dr. Jugal Kishore Tiwari who runs CEDO at Moti Virani and Nkihil Bhopale of BNHS who along with Mr. S.N. Varu will unveil the splendours of nature over the next few days. More of these 3 gentlemen given in the information section at the end of this blog.
After quick introductions & getting acqainted with each other, we head for Nakhatrana - 52 kms away which will serve as our base for the camp. Our birding starts shortly after we settle in, freshen and refurbish ourselves. Our first halt is at Layyari river & thornforest.
