A foggy trip to Sultanpur Bird Sanctuary

March 13, 2015

 For two entire winters, we have been planning to visit Sultanpur Bird Sanctuary. It is quite close by, just about 15 kms from our place on the Gurgaon-Farrukh Nagar Road and is known to become the home of a great many migratory birds during the cold days,

We set out at 8 AM on a rare, sunny Sunday last December, hoping to spend a nice hour in the sanctuary by the lakeside and catch glimpses of the winged beauties. But the moment, we crossed NH8, we got covered with a thick blanket of fog. Determined to make the trip and hoping the weather would improve once we reach our destination, we drove on, excruciatingly slowly and in near-zero visibility.

We reached the sanctuary at 10 AM, after an hour and half more than what it would have otherwise taken. As our luck would have i, the whole place was shrouded in white mystery even in that hour. So we returned with only a few foggy pictures.
