Trip to LRK - Little Rann of Kutch

LRK was one of the last trips while I was in Vadodara. This trip was also long pending. It was a road trip with 3 other friends.

We left Vadodara at around 3 AM and reached LRK by around 7:30AM after getting the permit and tickets, we started off with morning safari.

Following are the spotting from the morning safari:

Overall it wasn't a very good trip considering number of species that we got to spot. We expected to spot wide range of eagles, falcons(spotted Marlin but couldn't get to shoot) and owls. We did spot some flamingos (both lesser and greater) but they were very far off the shore.
