As you can gather from the last post that I have just returned from a visit to the Ghana Bird Sanctuary. It was a long day well spent. The point of these posts is to motivate you too to visit the park if you have any interest in the natural world. Because I personally feel that wildlife is going to get rare sooner than later.   And if you are living near Jaipur-Agra-Delhi-Bharatpur then it is done as easy as it is said. If like me you do not want the hassle of staying in a hotel, just go for a day visit. The park is open from 6am to 6pm, so pick your time. You also have a choice of mode of transport in the park, namely cycle rickshaw, tonga, bi-cycles, walking & electric van. Once you are inside the sylvan world of the park you will be hooked. If you are a novice it is a good idea to take along a field guide or hire a cycle rickshaw whose driver can point out the flora & fauna & the birds.Remember to bring along a camera with a good lens, besides binoculars & field guides, as these birds etc are living in a natural habitat & may be shy of the visitors.

A few do’s & don’ts while visiting the park.

Do not litter or smoke in the park or talk loudly or feed the birds.Keep safe distance from animals.

Here are some more pictures from the last days visit.
