Fudam Bird Sanctuary is located in Diu. A second site where you will be able to do a lot of bird watching is at the Fudam Bird Sanctuary. Located in Fudam town quite near to the Gangeshwar Temple, it is both a bird sanctuary as well as a forest department. A long road with wetlands on both sides leads up to the small forest office. It is here that found four Lesser Flamingos tiptoeing across the wetland. While was photographing the birds, a forest ranger came out of the office from Diu and after retirement had settled here. He had an immense knowledge of birds.
He took me to his office and showed me a small book named “Birds of India” whose pages had turned yellow but which he still used as a guide together spotting and discussing birds. The common birds that mentioned could be found in Diu were: Flamingo, Black Winged Stilt, Blue Rock Pigeon, Rose Winged Parakeet, Common Babbler, Grey Heron, Spoonbill, Small Blue Kingfisher, Common Hawk Cuckoo and Lagar Falcon. Morning and evening were the best time to spot the birds. He pointed to the watchtower which was under construction. It gave a bird’s eye view of the entire area. He seemed really proud of this place. They spotted a Cattle Egret and two Black Winged Stilts along the way. This is very beautiful tourist spot.
