1st Trip to Narsapur (21-Dec-2014)

Narsapur was in my pending list for quite some time now. Apparently Narsapur was the reason why I formed the Bird Photography Group in my community. And it is now that I got the opportunity to visit there.
However, one visit to Narsapur can never justify the potential of that location.
It is only 45 km from my place hence I don't mind making multiple trips to this location in the month of Jan and Feb until the migratories are there.

My Life-List Count increased by another 8 to 289 and I was able to spot so many beautiful migratories.
