Lotus pond and hunting lodge in Bhitarkanika

Walking through a forest we came to the remains of an old hunting blind facing a pond, presumably a place where an old-time Rajah decimated flocks of birds. The lodge has fallen into ruins, and the pond is over run with the green leaves of lotus in this season. There were three ordinary birds walking on the lotus pads: a pond heron and two bronze winged Jacanas.
