Recommended Posts

Overland Expeditions India

Bhigwan is a small dusty town on the border of Pune and Solapur district in Central Maharashtra, in India. Bhigwan is famous for birdwatching especially Flamingo and wild life photography. It is also known as mini Bharatpur. It is at one end of the huge Yashwant Sagar reservoir, forming the backwaters of the Ujain dam. One of the main attractions during the migratory season is the arrival of the pink greater flamingos. During the months of early jan – late feb, this place is thronged by bird lovers from all over Maharashtra.

 

Along with flemingo one can see many kinds of Ducks, Herons, Egrets, Raptors, painted storks, barheaded geese, demoiselle cranes and waders etc.

And we went Bhigan on our 45 Days south India explorer trip, their is guy named Datta nagare I got done all the booking from him only. He is helpful and very knowledgeable about wildlife.
