Bird watching at Bhigwan
Bhigwan is a backwater stretch formed over a dam at about 100 kms from Pune. Bhigwan is set on Solapur highway and is best visited as a day visit from Pune.
Bhigwan is a bird watchers paradise and on any given day in Winter (Oct - March) one can find 100+ varities of birds. Birds here comprise big birds (Flamingos, Pelicans, Storks etc,), Waterbirds and Raptors.
A boat ride is available in backwaters that could take photographers closer to birds.
Bhigwan offers a bird watching experience for budding bird photographers and its a must do for anyone looking for wide ranging bird species (migratory and resident) within a short span of time.
Note: Bhigwan has no stay in and around, so Baramati or Pune are best options for a stay.
