A day at Sultanpur bird Sanctuary

Yesterday, me and a few members of BCMTouring, decided to go to the Sultanpur bird sanctuary for a little bit of bird photography.

Sultanpur bird sanctuary is in Haryana (near Gurgaon) and is located around 50kms from Delhi and over 250 species of birds can been seen at Sultanpur, along with numerous animals and deer.

Sadly, there was just too much fog when we reached there and this situation remained the same till afternoon, after which we decided to head for home.

While the day wasn’t a complete loss and I had fun, I wish weather would have been a bit clearer to allowed me to take better photographs of the birds.
