On popular demand we have decided to explore Anna Sagar Lake at Jogipet this week-end. For those who are not aware, the route is to go on the Mumbai highway, past BHEL, ICRISAT etc. and turn right at the Sangareddy tri-junction. This turn off would be approximately 30 kms from Panjagutta.
After turning right, go straight, past the Sangareddy town and proceed further on the same highway for about 30 kms and you will touch Jogipet town. Go past Jogipet for about a km, you will come to Anna Sagar on your left. The lake is quite wide spread and one cannot miss it. We are given to understand that there is good birding at the lake, with lots of migrants, including flamingos. avocets, etc. etc.
I suggest we meet at Punjagutta cross road, as usual, at 6:00 a.m. and start in a convoy. The second meeting point, say by about 7:45, would be at the Sangareddy tri-junction, where we normally stop for a hot cuppa.
Since we need cars, members are requested take as many persons as possible in their vehicles. Surekha (9949038532) will coordinate. Please register with her – both lift givers and takers ! It would be nice if the fuel expenses of the vehicles are shared by the passenger.
Please keep some heavy snacks for breakfast and plenty of water, apart from binocs, cameras, spotting scopes, etc.
Non-members are requested to contribute Rs. 100/- each to the Society kitty.
Well, see you this Sunday for a great birding trip.
