If you are a bird lover then this place is a must to visit. I was here for Tirumala visit and I had put up in Tirupati. Hired a cab and reached the sanctuary in 2hours. I was lucky there was not a single visitor in the sanctuary. I visited on a weekday considering it’s covid I preferred a weekday to avoid crowd. They charged me 250 rupees which is very nominal (I had a camera). There are guides available incase you need.

Birds spotted Pelicans, open bill storks, Black headed ibis, Ducks. March is the time when most of the birds leave the sanctuary.. the guide informed peak times is Oct -Feb. during November we can also spot few endangered species. I spent approx 3hrs exploring the sanctuary. Looking forward for my next visit in November

A beautiful a place to vist if you are a nature lover. Very friendly and knowledgeable staffs and guides. You will find more than 20 species of migratory birds nesting hear. These birds come during September/October and leave by March. The Main view point is approximately 1 km from the inner car parking area. There is multiple view points throughout the walkway with ample space to sit and spend your time with the birds. Timing is 8/9 am to 4 pm. Also there is an Environmental Education Center where you can get all the details about the birds. Very good area to visit with kids and elderly, but please maintain silence and don't disturb the birds (they are in the nature and we all are the outsiders)

We went towards the middle of feb and there were plenty of birds. Very well maintained. You must take your binoculars or zoom lens otherwise it’s difficult to see much. Very peaceful and clean place. We spotted lots of cormorants, storks, spoon bills etc.

We visited Nellapattu bird sanctuary in the first week of February 2021. This was in fact the first post COVID fullday outing we had done and it was worth it. There were plenty of migratory birds despite being close to the end of winter. We got to see pelicans, open billed storks, white ibis & cormorants. The birds can be viewed from a walk path built around a large water tank / natural reservoir. The walk path has view points and a couple of watch towers. What was lacking though is a guide to guide the visitors. There were only 2 administrative staff- one at the ticket counter near the road & another near the administrative center. This could have been due to the COVID situation though. It would really help if the contact information for the sanctuary. Also the sanctuary is a bit away from the highway and the nearest place with a good restaurant is Sullurpet about 30km / 30 min. away.
But the variety and number of birds does make up for the lack of facilities & all in all it was a trip worth the while.

The Nelapattu is 100 Kilometers from Nellore. The most beautiful place for lovers of birds. Foreign Flemingos will visit during the month of November they will stay for a month or so to lay eggs. Every year Nellore district admintration conducts Flemingo Festival in the first week of December which is ideal. During this time the adminstration keeps buses to the location and food and fun will be available besides there will be full of enjoyment. People from Tamilnadu and other places will visit during the flemingo festival. Chennai is also 80 kilometers from here/
