Migratory birds flock Ambedkar Sanctuary

Pratapgarh (UP): Migratory birds from Siberia, China and Europe are flocking the Bhimrao Ambedkar Bird Sanctuary here which is yet to be fully developed and opened for tourists.

The Beti Jheel in the Bhadri estate of independent MLA Raghuraj Pratap Singh alias Raja Bhaiya, and its surrounding area spread over 427 hectares was declared a bird sanctuary by Chief Minister Mayawati in 2003 but due to inadequate funds and initiative, it has neither been fully developed nor formally opened for tourists and bird lovers.

Around 37 species of migratory birds have already arrived in the area, which presently has enough water in the pond because of floods in the Ganga last year, making the condition conducive for migratory birds.
