Nelapattu Bird Sanctuary

The following three photos were taken at the Nelapattu Bird Sanctuary earlier this year. It is about a 100 km from Chennai, near Tada in Andhra Pradesh. It is a nice drive/ride on the national highway leading to Kolkata. Or you can catch a train from the suburban station at Central. Its a great way to spend a Sunday -- it does not get as crowded as the Vedanthangal Sanctuary near Chinglepet. The season starts about October-November and it is probably the tail end now.

But you might have heard of the Pulicat Lake. This place is a part of that brackish water system.
