Fantastic Flamingos of Khadir Island
Kutch, the largest district in India after Ladakh, is home to several birding hotspots. Among them is Khadir Island, a monsoon island that is cut off from the mainland in the monsoon. Every year in the monsoon, the seasonal rivers of Kutch overflow into the salt-marshes of the Great Rann of Kutch, causing them to flood over. After the rains recede this great expanse of low-lying marshland begins to dry up. The waters are rich in food and minerals for enormous colonies of Lesser Flamingos, which flock here.
