Around 500 Bar-headed Geese were seen at Kuntamkulm sanctuary on 26 Dec 2013.  I was coming down from Tirunelveli and in the morning I saw two Spot-billed Pelicans in the Nainar Kulam at Tirunelveli.  Apart from the Geese there were around 20 Comb Ducks, Spot-billed Ducks, Northern Shovelers, Spoonbills, Green Shanks, Fulvous Whistling-ducks, Northern Pintails, Black Ibises… were also there.  Though I could not meet Bal Pandian he told me over the phone that the Shovelers are there with chicks.
