There is something enchanting about early morning and evening cruises in rivers and lakes – and I sure was looking forward to one in Bhadra Reservoir.
The staff at River Tern Lodge had requested I be very punctual for all activities – and I was. Only for the guide and some other guests to keep me waiting for 45 minutes. I had a long driving day ahead, and this delay was not good for my mood.
Eventually we were off – the first stop being an island where the birds River Terns flock by tens of thousands during the breeding season of April and May. I was a little early in the season, but would spot a fair number for myself.
The cruise last over an hour and a half with many a pleasant sight of birds. Enjoy the images and plan a trip for yourself too.
