Nachinola Fields

Wire-tailed Swallows One of the sites known to Abhi was called Nachinola Fields. We visited this site on the way back from Maem Lake one late morning. We passed a small pond known for Paddyfield Warbler on the way.
On reaching the site Abhi parked up at the roadside of a narrow road that passed in between a couple of marshy fields. Alongside the road was a small dyke with branches running off it into the fields.
At this site we saw Steppe Eagle and Lesser Adjutant overhead. On the wires good views of common species were obtained and my only Black-headed Munias of the trip were found by Len in the fields. This site was the only place other than the Beira Mar Hotel where I saw Cinnamon Bittern. Two birds were flushed from the dyke running alongside the road.

Abhi borrowed Lens scope and when asked said he may have found something important. His excellent eyesight had picked up three Yellow-wattled Lapwings crouched in amongst the grasses.
Although I do not know the exact location of this site it is worthy of a visit and may well produce any number of interesting species.
