Chowka Dam Revisited

Back to Chowka Dam for another go. The last time I was here they were doing all road work and I could not get to the back of the dam. They had finished all the road works and were working on all the paving around the roads. I do not know if the birds will appreciate it, but I think the local tourists might.
