Beyond the backwaters

Early morning at one of the southern backwaters of Chennai. The Kelambakkam marsh and salt pans are home to a variety of birds. We were probably not early enough to see most of them, but we did manage to get a list that included kingfishers, storks, cormorants, herons and egrets, as well as a few of those little brown jobs that are the very devil to identify. 

And no, I can't identify those buildings in the distance definitively either, but I believe they are the apartments of the Hiranandani complex. Now, don't ask me which one!

Its been a while since I was here - and back then - no buildings, well, then. Would still like to visit next time and take in this view - maybe before there are more buildings :-)

@Renu: I'm sure you'd like to be back!
@Sridhar: Come on over - do you have any plan in mind?
