    Default Exploring a New Birding Hotspot in West Bengal

    I had been already mentioned the general description of birds in and around Barddhaman Town in this forum. Currently I have focused on the alluvial river bed of Damodar which is gradually becoming a new hotspot for migratory as well as resident birds. So i want to share my information with you. From December, 2014 to November, 2015 I have found the following important birds at various locations in between Belkash and Ghordorchati (see the Google Earth map).
    Location - approx 4 km south from the Barddhaman railway station towards Arambag Road (100 km from Kolkata via NH2)
    Please giver your valuable comments in this respect.
