We visited the lake on 03-Dec Boatman Yuvaraj 9710518040 was very resourceful. He helped us spot gulls, terns, plovers, shanks, curlews and storks. The lake is so beautiful and a haven for birds. More migratory birds could be seen Feb onwards and till may they can be seen in breeding plumage as well. A must visit place for birders.

Today I went for Birding with Mr.Luke in his boat. It was such a wonderful experience. He has good knowledge about the birds there and knows the places well. He is very patient, polite and helpful. He was never in a hurry and always tried to help me with finding birds. He helped me to saw Wild Boar, Common Kingfisher which i haven't spotted myself and also other birds like Flamingos, Ibis, Storks, Cormorants, Gulls, Terns, Egret, Heron, Plovers, Lark, etc... He was even kind enough to help me buy some fresh fish for home. My sincere thanks to him and also his son Mr. Franklin who co-ordinated in phone from planning this trip till it's end. I would definitely recommend their service to anyone without any hesitation. May their tribe grows. You can reach Mr.Franklin on his mobile +91 97868 40943. Good Luck 👍

Mr Yuvaraj was very helpful.
I had contacted him earlier and he called me when the flamingos arrived.
He had a good knowledge of birds and could identify them from far.
His boat was good and took us near flamingos as close as possible.
It's was a worth trip.

Flamingo's Paradise

Pulicat bird sanctuary is the best place to visit for birds like flamingos and Guls during the migrant season, (Dec to May)

Yuvaraj is a boat man who has good knowledge of the birds. I would strongly recommend Yuvraj if you are planning for flamingo photography in pulicat lake.

Trip duration for photography will be like min 3 hr and max 4.30 hr..

Boarting service starts from morning 6.30 AM onwords and till sunset. Typically, if you start boating by 6.45 AM or 7 AM it is good..

also keep some snacks...

For a birder this experience is a must. It is a world apart ...far from the city hustle bustle...you get lost in this paradise...my experience of birding was always in company of friends and Yuvaraj, the boatman. A very calm and knowledgeable guide who knows the habitat and winged visitors very well... especially for novice bird watchers he is a boon. I would recommend him anytime
