Finally ticked off one more place in my birding list-ICRISAT,Patancheru campus.This place is just 10kms from my apartment and roughly took just 20 min to reach in morning hour,traffic free hour
PS: Special Permission is required to get entry in ICRISAT campus.
ICRISAT campus is maintained in beautiful way,offers nature in its raw form,heaven for Nature lovers .As a part of birding weekend ,got to travel to campus with fellow birding group at apartment.There were numerous pond inside the lake,full of greenery and bushes all around.We were able to spot Peacock in every 10 minute of interval.
I feel my self to lucky to view some beautiful site of Darter,Spot billed Pelicans and cormorants.

Finally could catch pics of spot billed Pelican in Hyderabad which i missed at Ameenpur birding(Still need to pen down my second visit to Ameenpur)

Already experience of Pelican was astounding for me , Still place was full of different awe moments.
I have always trying to get one darter among cormorant,and my record is always a single darter in 30 plus cormorant.But this time my heart is filled with joy and my day was made to see around 20 plus darter including small juvenile in just growing and parents darter feeding young ones.
