Nature Flamingo point, Nerul
The students of Lodha World School, Palava visited Flamingo point, Nerul on 19/1/2019, as a part of Nature club activity. The prime attraction of the trail was the Greater Flamingo (Phoenicopterus roseus) and the Lesser Flamingo (Phoenicoparrus minor). While ecologically important as part of food chains, for humans flamingos particularly are valued for aesthetic purposes, being popular sights given their colourful appearance, large size, unique behaviour and gregarious nature, sometimes flying or feeding in very large flocks. Besides flamingos, various other water birds were spotted and their behaviours were observed.
