150+ Ferruginous Pochards arrive at Sukhna, Chandigarh

Wintering ducks have arrived at the Sukhna Lake, Chandigarh.

On 7 Oct 09, Navjit and I visited the lake and were delighted to count 150+ Ferruginous Pochard Aythya nyroca (a near-threatened bird)

This seems to the highest number of Ferruginous Pochards in our region. I have never seen more than 20 at one place - Suresh C Sharma.
