During the Christmas weekend, we visited Chennai. Season being winter , decided to go to Pulicat lake (Sriharikota, SHAR road area, near Sullurpet, Andhra Pradesh – approx 100 km north of Chennai on the Nellore highway) to see the migrated birds. Wanted to see the flamingos, but they were not visible from the road. Since the water level was low, they had moved to the deeper part of the lake. Here are some pics of what we saw, from the road.
About 15 kms from Pulicat lake SHAR road, is the Nellapattu Bird Sanctuary. You kind of walk around the island where these birds are breeding. There is no boat ride here, unlike Ranganathittu, so you can’t get close.
