The 3rd Sunday Bngbirds Outing, Jigani Lake, 191210

The 3rd Sunday bngbirds outing to Jigani Lake drew quite a good response, and we were happy to see the crowd that collected in front of the tea-shop at Jigani! (Geetanjali and Subir have a great knack of including a handy tea-shop in all the Bannerghatta outings!) The tea-shop was particularly welcome on this cold morning, and we all then parked near the lake, and walked partially around the perimeter.

Here's the sunrise on the lake:

It was wonderful to have Subbu explain so much to us, especially some of the history of the lakes of Bangalore.
