A morning in Sultanpur Bird Sanctuary

I was looking for a Sunday. I wanted to visit nearby Bird Sanctuary again.
Location :
Sultanpur Bird Sanctuary is about 25 km from my house in Gurgaon.  http://www.sultanpurbirdsanctuary.com/

Sultanpur Bird Sanctuary is a very popular national park of India. located in Sultanpur village, Farukhnagar,Gurugram district in Haryana State. Sultanpur village is located 40 km from Dhaula Kuan in Delhi and 15 km from old Gurugram city on the Gurugram – Jhajhar highway. This Bird Sanctuary, ideal for birding and bird lookers, is best visited in winters when a large number of migratory birds come here.

Best Time to visit :  Dec to Feb.  
It closes from June to September.
Though I frequently visit this place, for last many weeks i had not gone.  It becomes quite hazy during winter time hence not so good for photography. It is a large marshy water body. Many migratory birds visit here every year. (Incidentally the migratory birds visit the place during winter)
Today morning i spent few hours with nature and birds.
We are a small photography group who visit the nearby places.

If you want to learn patience – it is from Egret. It waits for so long in one spot firmly stuck, to grab a fish in a fraction of a second.

Now enjoy some pictures:
