What can I say about Delhi’s disappearing wildlife and avifauna, which has not been said earlier.
And to make it worse, this 2km-long man-made lake is half-killed by DDA and rest of it’s going to be destroyed soon for an upcoming buildings project
As my photos show, the Sanjay Lake is home to local birds and hosts many migratory ones… people take walks along the banks of this lake a and lot of nature enthusiasts also visit to capture these birds.
As in my photos here, cormorants, water snakes, ducks, pigeons, squirrels, house sparrows, kites, green pigeons (hariyal), kingfishers, rufous treepies, eagles, yellow bee-eaters, shovelers, Northern pintails, common pochard, spot-billed ducks and many more species of avifauna can be spotted here.
While the DDA is responsible for nurturing this oases near Yamuna and initially did clean and beautified it by planting many trees, now the same agency is hell bent on destroying it.
I dread the day, it’s killed for ugly buildings, when people like us won’t be able to enjoy this slice on nature in our otherwise dead city…
