A visit to Asola Bhatti SanctuaryLast week I was fortunate to visit Asola Bhatti Wildlife Sanctuary, the only sanctuary in Delhi. We (a group of ten people) went there mainly for bird-watching. We could see black kite, shikra, blue fly- catcher, robin, peacock, bulbul, jungle babbler and parakeets. So far as water-birds are concerned, lake coot and different ducks could be seen. I have seen various other varieties of birds, but I could not recognise these varieties. In addition to birds, I could see nilgais and many monkeys. In fact monkey is a menace in the sanctuary.
As an inexperienced person and because of the fact that the visit was organised hastily, I visited the sanctuary without notebook and camera. However, I enjoyed the trek inside the jungle. It was organised by Conservation Education Centre (CEC), Delhi.
Eagerly waiting to visit the sanctuary again during next winter.
