Bhandup – Flamingo watch boat ride

We did a morning boat ride at Bhandup to see some waders. The boat point is right at the end of the Bhandup pump station road.

A good time to go there is some two hours before high tide. Tide table for Mumbai

Awfully mucky and not the greatest but we did see some waders and some flamingos today.

The boatman was not the most experienced, He did not cut the motor when nearing the birds.
