2016-10-08 Bhandup Pumping Station

Last time had gone a month back to BPS when it was raining a lot.

Blue tailed beeeaters were still there, weaver activity had slowed down though there were a lot of weavers every where and migratory species were back.

Some bird activity in terms of regulars like White cheeked bulbul, cattle egret, yellow eyed babbler, sandpiper, painted storks, glossy ibis, pied crested cuckoo, red munia and ofcourse blue tailed beeeaters.

Darp Tulas (Hyptis suaveolens)

In migratory there were whiskered terns, river terns, marsh harrier and gull billed terns

Got some very nice cloud formations and sunset.

And after sunset before getting dark got to see the display of 100s of blue tailed beeeaters.
