A half day birdwatching workshop was organized on 27th Oct for interested people from the Tirunelveli and Thoothukudi districts. A short introduction to birds, landscapes and issues facing wetland conservation was made followed by a trip to Vaagaikulam heronry. In spite of heavy rain some fourteen participants came and enthusiastically participated in the event. For many, this was the first exposure to birds in the wild. The next trip to Tirupadaimarathur is planned in the 3rd week of November. People interested can contact Mr. M. Mathivanan at
