Mumbai loves playing host to its pink-winged visitors, who migrate annually from Gujarat to different parts of the city, including Thane and Navi Mumbai. Sewri, however, sees the largest congregation of flamingoes.

Now, before the birds head home, the Bombay Natural History Society (BNHS) is organising an outing to the venue for visitors to learn about these long-legged beauties and wetlands on May 12.

The Sewri mudflats are also a great place to see birds like the Common Greenshank and Redshank, Common and Green Sandpiper, Eurasian Curlew and many more. This could be your final chance to say goodbye before the birds head back to the Kutch.

Or you could also bring in Mother’s Day (also on May 12) by taking your mom along for a trek to the highest point of BNHS Nature Reserve, learn about mothers in wild through their AV show and participate in a treasure hunt and a quiz.

For more information on the events, call 95949 29107/ 95949 53425.
