Diu - Fudam Reserve.

Visited this site a couple of times at high tide, when the birds that have been feeding out in the Mangrove marsh come in to roost around the salt pans. Each time we visited there were about 200+ Curlew Sandpipers, 600+ Temminck's Stints, over a hundred Little Stints, a few hundred Greater Sand Plovers (with smaller numbers of Lessers) and 50 or so Marsh Sandpipers, as well as all the usual stuff for this habitat. There is a watch tower for viewing, but this is condemned and is locked up.
