Day 1) Departure: 22nd Feb 645 am from Dadar station in a mini van. We will have stops at Navi Mumbai on the way to pick up any participants. Exact time of this pick up will be informed a day prior. We will have breakfast and lunch on the way and reach Bhigwan (Kumbhargaon) by 2.30 pm. Once there, we will freshen up in the rooms and get ready for the first boat ride (Sunset ride) to click some beautiful birds and their silhouettes. After the refreshing boat trip where we see the sun go down in the water, we will come back to relax in the rooms, followed by some rural simple dinner. Post dinner we will have a night trail to sight some night birds this is a fascinating trail and often gives us amazing insights into the dark world. After this trail, we will attempt some astro-photography and try and shoot milky way and star trails.
Day 2) Sunday will begin early as we board the boat again for a sunrise ride, again get up close to the birds and click them. The birding expert at location will provide detailed information about the species, their habitat etc to help us all identify and click the birds by knowing more about them.
Once we finish the tour, we will have late breakfast and then head back to Mumbai, have lunch on the way and plan to reach by 4 pm- 5 pm.
Things to carry:
Your cameras with longer focal length (telephoto/zoom) lenses, or point and shoot cameras with a good optical zoom. Monopods will be really good to have.
Carry wide-angle lenses as well if interested in astrophotography
