Bhigwan has been my most visited destination since last few years for birding. Come November and migratory birds arrive here in thousands. There are two villages neat Bhigwan which you can visit for bird watching namely Diksal and Kumbhargaon. There are boats avaiable here for hire. Kumbhargaon is more organised commercially however I prefer Diksal which is more suited for birding.

You can expect to spot Flamingos, Northern Shovellers, Ruddy Shellducks, Spotbill Ducks, Godwits, Sandpipers, Grey Heron, purple Heron, Ibis, Osprey, Marsh Harrier, Sea Gulls, River Terns, Great Egrets and Pintail Ducks here. Occasionally you may be able to spot Barheaded Geese too.

Sharing few snaps taken during our recent visit (14 Jan 2020).
