Birds of Diu

We extended our trip to Gir with a quick trip to Diu. Definitely did not visit Diu with an objective of birding but was pleasantly surprised to see a bird sanctuary ....




...with a small signboard. Was excited to see Flamingoes , Spoonbills and Western Reef Egrets next to the roadside






and the best part was to see hundreds of Blue cheeked bee-eaters on wires. Blue cheeked bee eaters migrate to north-western parts of India usually during summer and early winter. It was rare to see so many of them.



The only guy at the sanctuary mentioned that the best season would be winters and they have a boat ride around the wetlands. This could be one of Diu's best kept secrets.
