LRK mean Little Rann of Kutch, is a popular birding spot for raptors in winter.i daily talk with my Bestie Pankaj and he is planned to go LRK 2-3 times and decided to in November.1st time i thought to go in early winter and made an immediate plan of one full day birding on 17/11/17 with Pankaj.
To reach 6.30am at forest office of LRK and take a sleep of at least 2hour, we have to start our journey 6pm but we were delayed.i started my journey from my home at 6.30pm to pick a my friend Pragnesh but decided to go after dinner so we both took dinner at her sister's home.we left there around at 7.30pm and went to bardoli to pick another bestie Viren and reached there at 8.20pm.i parked my cheetah there and took viru's THAR 4 X 4.
we had decided to sleep one by one but we all were awake till Ahmadabad and finally reached Bajana around at 5.30am.after parking we took a sleep till 6.40am and Pankaj came from Patan.around 7am we took permit and did morning safari and got Steppe Eagle,Peregrine Falcon, Imperial Eagle,Merlin, Short-earled Owl in morning session. we ended our morning session timely and returned to forest office.
Took lunch at one of hotel and rested for 30min.After taking Permit of evening session we went another place and taken shots of male Pallid Harrier.then we decided to go inside the area.after drive of 5min, Viren see the the Shrike,it was more white color n i told its Steppe so we all laugh coz its rare n i thing not sighted in LRK till now. while we approached for good shot,it fly away.but we all were lucky to have good shots of rarity.
Forget to see the setting though came good result.
