This wetland region in Gurgaon is a birder’s paradise thanks to a small park, a small lake, and the unexpected promise of over 320 species of birds.

A painted stork flies slowly overhead before turning to settle pterodactily on an acacia tree, where its big, ungainly young screech for attention and wave their heads in search of food. The sight is evocative of a scene from a Jurassic Park movie. Watching these colourful birds crisscross over you as you stroll through Sultanpur National Park has a primal and mesmerising quality.
