The Territory

Started off to Bhigwan, situated on the border of Pune Solapur Highway, early morning with bunch of Architects, some professionals & some students, who were completely unaware about the birding and tge magical feeling it gives.
As soon as our boats started moving, their unawareness turned into excitement and further turned into hunger to know more and more. We saw many many birds just like any Bhigwan Visitor would, like
Herons, Egrets, Ibises, Storks, Godwits, Lesser Cormorants, Purple Moorhen, lots of Shovelers, Coots, Gulls and Terns & the highlight of the visit were many many Flamingos.
But the exceptional sighting this time was the *Bar-headed Geese*...the highest flying migratory bird..! Something we badly search for, everytime we visit Bhigwan.

After this exciting boating of Bhigwan, accompanied by lots of Migratory & Resident birds, we headed to Bhuleshwar.
Our friend & an archeology student & a soon to be an expert in historical monuments, Digvijay escorted us all to each and every details of the temple of Bhigwan. One of the oldest monuments we have so close to Pune.
The information he shared kept everyone mesmerised and completely changed the angle of looking at the temples. A great contribution it was for our group.
In all, the day was full of Nature & History which made those Monument lovers the Nature lovers, and nature lovers the Monument lovers. Each and everyone bagged something new from this one day tour.
Thanks to all the participants who were constantly excited and were ready to accept and absorb whatever they were offered.
One of the best one day outing it was...!!!
