Visit to Sultanpur Bird Sanctuary

A team of 37 students and 3 teachers of G. D. Salwan Public School got the opportunity to visit Sultanpur Bird Sanctuary (Sultanpur National Park), Ramsar site, Gurgaon on 28th January 2023. The aim of the excursion was to create awareness about different facets of biodiversity and develop a positive attitude towards conservation of environment.
As a pre-visit activity, a documentary about the bird sanctuary was shown to students to create awareness about different migratory birds and the factors leading to migration of these exotic birds to the sanctuary every year during winter season. Students enjoyed the lush green Sultanpur National Park with huge trees, shrubs and clusters of bougainvillaea. Every year aprox. 90 migratory bird species arrive here in search of feeding grounds and to spend the winters in Delhi.
Sultanpur National Park is essentially a bird watchers’ paradise with few trees obscuring the visitors’ view of the lake. Students enjoyed spotting birds with binoculars and were delighted to watch migratory birds such as Siberian cranes, black winged stint, bar headed goose, spotted sandpiper, Eurasian teal, black necked stork, cormorants, painted stork and many more exotic birds. It was a great learning experience for the students being in the lap of nature.
