Birding on Rawal Lake
In Pakistan, winter is in full swing and the weather is very cool these days. This weekend I planned to visit Rawal lake to see some birds. In winter, the morning light is very low and fog also makes photography difficult. So I decided to visit the lake a little bit late like around 11 am so I got some good light to photograph the birds. During this visit, I expected to see some common birds in Rawal lake like the White wagtail, Marsh harrier, and some Prinia species.
On Rawal lake, some bird species are very common like Common Babbler, Jungle Babbler, Spotted dove, and Colored dove. In winter leaves of all trees fall down and birds are seen clearly. Different colors of leaves also provide some unique backgrounds and different color contrasts.
Around the lake, there is some cultivated land so I saw some common birds that are mostly found in fields like Bitterns, Bush chat, Long-tailed Shrike, and Red-wattled lapwing.
Some water birds were also seen in Rawal lake. These birds are mostly found all year round like coot and Waterhen. I also saw pipit sitting on a wall near the lake. I also captured Pallas's gull flying on Rawal lake searching for food.
