Flamingoes at Sewri
I gave Sewri mudflats a visit recently, to check out the migrating flamingoes arriving over there. Apart from Flamingoes, there were other birds such as wades, the great egrets, sea gulls and most vibrant; the kingfisher.
Lets get to the images straight away!
Flamingos will stay in Sewri mudflats till end of June and will migrate back to north. If you are a bird enthusiast, be sure to go and give them a quick visit.
Although the birds are very far off, in order to view them you will need binoculars or hire a boat at Airoli. But again, hiring a boat is expensive (~Rs 1500 for 3 hours)
Using large focal length telephoto lens is the best option to capture the best images.
I have used Nikon L120 which has 21x zoom. Again that was not enough, and I had to crop the images to get a better view of flamingo’s activity.
[…] It is very rare to find this bird in the urban areas of Mumbai, because kingfishers like to live around swampy and wet areas, especially in the Sewri Mudflats. […]
