As per urgent plan for Hingolgadh,i had talked with my best guide Akbarbhai for White-winged Tern sighting in Nal Sarovar coz i was unable to go there and click it since last 2yrs.Akbar told that there is a 50 % chance coz water level was just 1ft+ and 2-3 White-winged Tern were there.
So on 20/06/17 started my journey towards Nal Sarovar Bird Sanctuary at 5am from Surat and meet my friends Viru and Abhay at Kamrej cross-road on NH8,they were coming from Bardoli.we reached there at 10.45am and went a location for our mission White-winged Tern started with Akbar, Ashraf & 2 boatman.
we came out from car and feel was like we were put in the pre-hot oven coz AC temperature was at 16 degree C and outside temperature was 42 degree C+.walked for 1+km and again mine condition worsen.(i had skipped last 2yrs trip for this reason coz this tern came during hot climate at Nal Sarovar).Akbar was searching White-winged Tern thru his Binocular and i was thru my camera.After 30min Akbar find it and we went inside the lake thru boat.
it was very hard to go inside due to low water level,they are walking in the lake and pushing our boat from behind.and luck goes down,White-winged Tern fly away coz we were passes from chick of Red-wattled Lapwing & Black-winged Stilt so they started giving alarm call.we tried for flight shot but failed.after 10+min again they came and clicked 5+ flight shots.
it was very difficult to find This Tern(just 2-3 were there) out of 100+other terns from the boat and with handheld then focus n click.
here is one of them.
