OK.... Another day another Trip to the Bird Sanctuary of Attidiya. This was more towards the end of the Birds season where you hardly find any migratory birds at the site. However, the sanctuary was full of birds that are found in Sri Lanka throughout the year.
As you enter, many blooming red lotus flowers greet you.
The Less spoken of Boralesgamuwa Lake or Wewa is indeed a gorgeous scene
Many a Flora around
And the bigger ones as the Water Monitors...
Then you get to the birds - this is the Gira Maliththa a greenish bird with a long red beak
And Flying Kithala's or White breasted Waterhen,Pheasant Tailed
The Largest Kingfisher on Earth !
Harmony of Nature
Then the Purple Heron About to take off on a flight
The infamous Kurulu Goya or Gurulu Goya that eats smaller Birds !
Some Flying Ducks
Some Brahmian Kytes - Brahmana Ukussa
More Hanging Bats
And last but not least - the Ati Kukula
But, unfortunately, there was a nemesis too - the Ratmalana Air force base is adjoining the bird sanctuary and the following planes were basically ruining their habitat :(
