    First off, good article, was like revisiting Bhigwan again…

    And here are the bird names that I am familiar with.
    A – Green bee eater, K – pond heron, G – I think is a grey heron, 0 – Grey Heron, Q – White breasted Kingfisher or Common Kingfisher, R- Marsh Sandpiper, S – Sea gull, T – Black Drongo or King Crow, note the cut in his tail…

    E, F,H,I and P are all egrets, its a bit tricky to distinguish Median from Large, Little or Cattle…

    If you look at my Bhigwan album on my FB Page, you can see some of these birds in them, also the Bhandup Pumping station album, where I saw Green Bee Eater for the first time.

    D – Painted Stork and Glossy Ibis
    E and H – Little Egret
    G and O – Grey Heron
    Q – White throated Kingfisher
    R – definitely a sandpiper, but not sure which type.
    T – black drongo
