I went to Nellapattu Sanctuary. Popularly known as one of the largest habitats for pelicans in Southeast Asia, the Nelapattu Sanctuary is home to many other native as well as migratory birds. It is great place to go.

Visited today, but totally disappointed because no birds are came. Infact this is a best month to visiting birds. I Don't know why there are no birds. Weather not cooperative and also there is no sufficient water. Best time to visit in the rainy season.
