Apart from the Indian Great Warbler and Brown shrike we also saw a Pied Bush Chat and two Marsh Harriers combing the fields. The number of Marsh Harriers has dwindled this winter. As cultivation is already knee-high the waders and small birds were literally absent except a few sand pipers. We saw Common, Green, Spotted and Marsh Sandpipers as solitary individuals. Barn Swallows and Blue-tailed Bee Easters were fairly common.
