Hebbal Lake 21.10.12

An invite from the Birdwatchers' Field Club of Bangalore for a Sunday Birdwatching trip made me realise it was ages since i went on a structured birdwatching trip. Although I was unable to proceed to the trip planned to Indluwadi Cross, Bannerghatta-Anekal Road, i went on a short trip to Hebbal Lake, which was closer.

Purple Moorhen (Porphyrio porphyrio) also called Purple Swamphen
