Migratory birds are flocking to the estuary

On the finish of autumn, when the river rises within the estuary, the quantity of silt on it is just one and a half to 2 inches. The whole lot else is sand. Earlier than winter, a wide range of grasses and shrubs start to develop in such silty moist areas. Of those, Uri grass, Durba grass, Mutha of two-three species, Vadali or Vadail, reed and flax are extra.

These grasses (once they rise just a few centimeters above the soil) are very tender. Its tender grass and roots are highly regarded with migratory geese and swans. And inside or across the silt are 1000’s of bugs, worms, and earthworms, in addition to teams of such invertebrates. Hundreds of kilometers to the north of the nation, from which lots of of 1000’s of estuaries or wetland birds (wetland birds) come, that is the listing of meals served by nature.

On the early morning of November 20, when seven or eight of us reached Char close to the ship anchored off the island anchored close to Nijhum Island, there have been 1000’s of birds chirping within the air just like the buzzing of birds within the bazaar. The fog was so mild that nothing might be seen from 50 meters away. However the chirping of birds was getting deeper and deeper.

We have been accompanied by the newly appointed Ambassador of the Netherlands to Bangladesh, Anne Gerard van Leuven. He has been a chicken lover since adolescence. The ambassador was the primary to say that among the many birds chirping within the distance, you might hear the decision of a duck named Lalshir or Imaginative and prescient. I used to be probably not accustomed to this put up. The ambassador additionally mentioned that Lalshir roamed the distant areas from their metropolis.

The chirping of birds continued to extend because the solar appeared alongside the horizon. We stopped the speedboat at a sure boundary and tried to estimate the variety of birds. It was attended by Rajib Rashedul Kabir, a wildlife researcher from the Forest Division and Sabit Hasan, a chicken researcher from the Isabella Basis. All of us went there on the behest of Isabella and the ambassador was along with her companions to see the initiatives being carried out within the coastal areas funded by their very own nation. Chook watching was a bonus for each events, though it was additionally a part of a chicken rely for Isabella.

It may be mentioned that the variety of Lalshir was about two thousand. I additionally noticed lots of of Pyong geese or gadwals, the equal of bhunti geese or turquoise geese, some geese or malards, pantamukhi or khunte-lip geese or shovelers, and patari geese or Eurasian teal. Nevertheless, the Rangamuri or Crimson-crested Porchad seen in Tanguar Haor and the Black Coot or Waterfowl have been in no way.

Redness is available in early winter and goes away in February. They reside within the northernmost a part of the continents of Asia and Europe, in the course of the summer-monsoon and autumn seasons. Constructing a nest there, elevating kids and elevating them, they virtually all journey south.

When the snow begins to fall and freeze within the northern international locations originally of autumn and winter, then the journey of all of the birds dwelling there with the pink deer begins in direction of the much less winter international locations of the south. As a result of, within the southern international locations it will get chilly, however not normally frozen.

Redheads unfold to a number of international locations in Africa, together with Europe and Asia. A bunch of them involves our nation yearly. In Bangladesh, IUCN and the Bangladesh Chook Membership put on rings on the legs of migratory birds, and quite a lot of different species of birds, together with redheads,
