On 25th November 2012, Sunday, I went to Ghasa Lake which is approximately 40KM from Udaipur city, Rajasthan, India with Mr. Nirmal Solanki, Dr. Mahendra Singh Rathore, Mr. Harshvardhan Rathore and Mr. Ankit Bhargava. We heard that Flamingo’s have arrived there. Unluckily we could not locate one, but still we could see many birds!

If you are going to Ghasa in the evening, I recommend you to go via Eklingji Temple and if you are going in the morning, I recommend go via Chittor – Dabok – Mavli Highway. Here are the few birds we saw there :-

1 Purple Heron
2 White Breasted Kingfisher
3 black drongo
4 Common Moorhen
5 common coot
6 Comb duck
7 egret

8 woolly necked stork
9 spot billed duck
10 pied bushchat
11 ashy prinia
12 plain prinia
13 frog
14 common myna
15 green bea-eater
16 wood sandpiper
17 green sandpiper
18 black-tailed godwit
19 yellow wagtail
20 little ringed plover
