Long week end – Yamuna Bio Diversity park.

This weekend is long again. I decided to venture out – this time outskirts of Delhi, quite far from place where I lived. Yamuna Bio Diversity park. I knew this is not season for birds. However I wanted to walk around the green and spot some birds.
Location :
50 km from Gurgaon in Haryana.  15 Km from Connaught place in Delhi.
Best Time : Any time of the year. It is closed on Saturday & Sunday., open from 1000 hrs to 1700 hrs
This one is a lovely green bee eater.
Two cormorants in animated talk I believe.
This tiny, chirpy long tailed bird is plain prinia.

This one is a shikra. Look at the second picture. It can turn its head about 180 Degree.

For those who wish to visit (visit during winter if you are looking for migratory birds)  – Saturday and Sunday it is not open. (do not ask me whose great idea is this not to open on week end) After crossing Yamuna (river ! rather Nalla) Take straight (not left) small lane and ask some one. (do not follow blindly the google map. It will take you through left through a muddy, narrow, dirty lane and to wrong park!). There are two Yamuna bio diversity parks. Phase 1 and 2 I understood. Phase 1 is right one. Phase 2 is vast waste land.
Surprisingly the custodian there said that it is not open for public but he let me in. I saw he let many others in too. He does not allow you to move around on your own. He asks one of his employees to walk you through (which I did not like, I like to move on my own, wait, watch and click pictures).  I have no idea asto why I am not allowed move on your own. May be he has some places where he does not want us to go !? or pure safety issue ??
