Birding Trip (Fish Pond, Sandspit, Karachi)

 By BCP member Ahmer Ali Rizvi

Hi Friends,

Hope you all will be doing well.

This is to let you know that Migratory Birds have started arriving in Pakistan and are congregating in coastal areas of Sindh and Balochistan. I visited my favorite bird watching spot (a slat pan adjacent to Mangrove Forest at Sandspit) on Sept 1.
