The coastal wetland ecosystem of Jamnagar is a birding extravaganza with photo-ops aplenty. Here the diversity of habitats ranges from salt marshes, fresh water wetlands, mudflats, brackish water and mangroves, creating a perfect platter of amazing birdlife. Layered with one delight after another with over 300 species of birds, this amazing destination is brimming with activity, offering birding enthusiasts, photographers and naturalists’ endless occasions for avian appreciation.
Jamnagar, a birding hot-spot is not only great for observing the mesmerizing bird life but also serves as a great opportunity for photographers to compose incredible images at close distance. Our tour is led by Vipul Ramanuj, a wildlife expert with special interest in wildlife photography. Having spent several years extensively studying and photographing this habitat and its wildlife, Vipul will share his knowledge of this region with the participants along with hands-on tips on photography.
During this trip, we will be visiting different habitats each having their own specialty in terms of sighting avid bird life. Birding here is bound to leave one euphoric with the sheer number of waterfowl present. With the wetlands carpeted pink by large flocks of Lesser Flamingos, Pelicans swimming in perfect formation as they prepare to nose-dive for the catch of the day along with Ducks, Storks, Gulls, Geese and other Waders ambling through the water all together create an exclusive kaleidoscope of birds. Apart from the resident and migratory birds, chances of sighting rare birds like Indian Skimmer, Crab Plover, Eurasian Oystercatcher, and Ruddy Turnstone are in plenty. Add to these, watching /photographing the live synchronized acrobatics performance by millions of Rosy Starlings at Lakhota Lake is definitely an event that ensures a complete birding experience. While exploring the riches of Jamnagar we will not only be learning about various bird species and their identification but also practice various ways to overcome challenging field conditions faced by photographers to get that perfect shot. Here you will have time, ample time to compose images and boost your creativity.
