15-Aug-2011 Birthday tour of the lake

Today was little Aditi's birthday and it was celebrated with a tour of Puttenahalli Lake, guided by Usha Rajagopalan - to introduce the children (and their parents) to the lake and its natural wealth.

The kids enjoyed themselves so much that it lasted for at least 15 min more than the scheduled hour! New birds were spotted - ducks, duckling, pair of purple herons together. Mating? Hopefully! 
Lots of chicks of coot and swamp hen. 

They were even shown the compost pile and the kids changed their idea that composted garbage will stink and happily took handfuls of the manure and put it for a nearby tree.

PNLIT looks forward to hosting more such tours.
