Why Gujarat Government is not taking interest to conserve wetlands.Also There is lack of interest by Local Politicians to conserve This Both Wetlands.
There are only 2 Big wetland where migratory birds come n stay till water remains in wetland.both are 15-20km away from Navsari,one is at Sultanpur n other is at Nani Kakrad.Water remains in Both wetland till December/January end but Sultanpur Wetland is dried by local villegers who have fish farm near by wetland since starting of October and Nani Kakrad wetland will dried up by Local till December end.
i had spotted 100+ Greater Flamingos at Sultanpur wetland in August.now you can see only dried area.
We have still one Wetland Remains for Bird watching n Photography,Nani Kakrad.
 I was stayed at Bilimora n talked with my friends, Dr.Dharmeshbhai and Dr.Sujitbhai on evening of 16th November to visit Nani Kakrad wetland on 17th early Morning but due to busy schedule at hospital, they didn't came.so around at 7am i went there after driving of 20km.
It was lil cold n foggy morning even around at 7.30am.Find a area beside road for car parking n reached a point of wetland after walking of aprx 1km.
I had decided to sit on ground close to water n sighted so many species with clicking.At around 8.30am here a Birds call/sound/song so i was so curious to find as its of Cranes.n its a wow moments as 500+cranes were coming from east of wetland n land in.took shots of them but they were too much far away from me.
