2009-01-25 Kavadi, Pune

When at Sihgadh valley we had met a gentleman, Manoj Baghwat. He had guided us on how to visit this place.
So we took the PMT bus to hadapsar and from there another bus going to KanchanUrali passing via Kavadi fata.

From this fata it was told that it is around 1 1/2 km. But this walk was also very enjoyable and fruitful with respect to birds. The first that we encoutered was the male ond female of the pied buschat. Little ahead we also saw the siberian stonechat.

There were lot of wagtails in the fields which were stretching far on both the sides of the road. A car passed us and we observed that the gentleman had stopped at the pied buschat and then proceeded ahead and so we thought that he must be a birder.
