Bangalore – Hyderabad Highway. Just before you climb the Hebbal Flyover, take left towards Tumkur. After a longish drive, take a U turn (keep asking for for Hebbal “kare” (lake), hit the ring road and on your left, you will find a well maintained park near Hebbal Lake. The charges are Rs 10/- per person but birdwatchers and senior citizens get a free entry from 6 am to 9.45 am.
I landed up at 10.30 am and saw an expansive islet with birds perched atop. Wasn’t very lucky. Decided to try again tomorrow at 6am.
I strolled around to get a close up of a butterfly and as I moved closer and closer, I was startled by a movement ahead ! Well… it was a young couple hiding behind the bush and er…having some intimate moments !!! Honestly, I wasn’t looking out for this type of birdwatching ! I quietly retreated only find the park scattered with love birds and none of them of the feathered variety !
Hopefully, they won’t land up at 6am tomorrow ! Anyway, watch this space !!
