Dear Birders:
During winters we prefer going to wetland for the migrants.  Manjeera is as good as any, plus the fields on either side of the road leading to the barrage offers very good viewing of finches, wagtails, ibises, munias, etc. etc.
We shall gather at the Punjagutta cross road at 6:30 a.m.  From here we proceed on the Bombay highway up to Sangareddy
tri-junction (about 30 kms) and turn right.  Here we shall make a final halt and proceed in a convoy, after a hot cuppa.  We have requested the Forest Department for a boat, so that we can go to the island and observe the nesting birds.  This is subject  to adequate level of the water in the lake.  While returning we shall do birding around the fields as also visit the two small water bodies.
Please carry breakfast, water etc.  Non members are requested to contribute Rs. 100/- each to the society kitty.  Members are requested to attend in large numbers as this place offers exciting birding.
Surekha (9949038532) is requested to please coordinate, as usual.  Thanks in advance.
