A Visit to Nagpur - Ambazari and Bore Wildlife Sanctuary

Nagpur is where I completed majority of schooling and Bachelors. Since I did not visit Nagpur since 2012 and decided to take a detour to Nagpur on my way to Hyderabad from Vadodara. It was 1st Jan 2015 when I started from Vadodara on my RE 500 Classic.


Stopped at Jalgaon (another town where I spend 2 years as a kid) for night break. Started back to Nagpur on 2nd Jan morning at 9AM and reached Nagpur by 6PM.

I spent couple of days in Nagpur for catching up with feathered residents of Nagpur and around.

Ambazari: Big Lake which is in the center of the city and a fav place for morning walkers and joggers. This was was a live with lot of bird activity. Following is the list of birds I managed to capture with my gear.

Bore Wildlife Sanctuary: Located 50 kms away from Nagpur, Bor came in limeight after the news of a Tigress with 4 cubs. So I tried my luck if I could spot and picture the new family in the sanctuary
