Udaipur Birding 3

This afternoon I went back to Fateh Sagar Lake for another look. I was hoping to get some decent photos of a River Tern and/or a Common Polchard. But no such luck. There was a Common Polchard way out in the middle of the lake but it was too far away for anything decent. doh!

I only went about half way around the lake because there were heaps of hoons in motorbikes being idiots around the lake. They spoilt the whole ambience of the place. Maybe I have something to show for my wasted afternoon. I am awaiting identification on a wader. It may be a new bird. Let’s hoping. Edit: No it is nothing new. 🙁

On the way back I spotted a Shikra on a street light. There was a cop car parked underneath it but that did not worry me. I just ejected my bicycle and ran over the road and started taking photos. I get lots of stares. The people had no idea what I was doing. They would rather gawk at a foreigner than nature.
