This April, I made a quick trip to Eastern Himalayas for birds in the springtime. More than a usual trip it was like breakthrough travel after a long gap. The feeling of viewing mountains and taking fresh air in outdoor is really cherishable.
As I thought the pandemic situation was getting better and we can continue in our normal life, the 2nd wave of Covid hit us very badly, more devastating than the 1st wave. The partial lockdown has been imposed by the Govt to reduce the strength of this pandemic.
So, again it is time for cleaning out old backlog images and making them streamline. Also, I am in the process of updating the look & feel of my website. Hopefully, I will be done with it soon.
Coming to the trip, I visited two well-known birding places in eastern Himalaya.
- Latpanchar &
- Lava ( Lava/Rishap region)
Latpanchar was comparatively less productive than it used to be previously but Lava and the surrounding regions specially Rishap were really good in terms of birds. It can be the reason for less human presence. More than fourty species of birds have been seen and I was able to document a few of them.
This time, I had not planned to concentrate on any particular species, rather more inclined to spend few days in the lap of the Himalayas and whatever will come across. Here are a couple of images. More images will be uploaded in my STOCK section.
As usual, stay safe & healthy 🙂
