i had planned to visit Nal Sarovar with my close friend Dr.Pankaj on 14/04/16,my another friend Hiren Joshi also joined me from Bardoli.
Hiren came from Bardoli to Surat around at 4 pm and we went to Ahmedabad in my car. After drive of 300+km we reach at Hotel Stay inn,Changodar, Ahmedabad outskirt around at 11.30pm.did check in and after fresh, we went for sleep coz we have to wake up at 5am n have to drive aprx 70km.
Wake up around at 5am an after refresh we were on the way towards Nal Sarovar bird sanctuary.due to traffic we reach around at 6.30am,we meet Pankaj there n with our favorite guide Akbar & Latif we went inside the lake after paying entry fee n camera fee.
we had clicked more than 300 photos till noon and took break for lunch.while we were taking lunch,we ha decided to go 20-30km for Red-necked Falcon.as m so much exhausted, having so much headache but for my friends,i went. i had avoid to click some good shot coz it was very hot climate and we have to walk 1+km.then we were on the way to return so i took some sleep n feel fresh.
Even after sleep and some lemon water,feel little headache.Akbar told us to go at one place we can click common kingfisher,it was around 4.30pm and sudden we saw Little Heron aka Striated Heron.i had clicked flying shots and got only one clear shot.my friends went towards it and i was sitting there due to extreme exhausts and again it gives me a 3flying shots.
during my whole trip,i did manual mode and most of shots are little soft due to shutter speed set as 1/1000.
