Hello
We went here in late Jan this year 09. There was water and plenty of birds, including cranes, storks, snake birds etc etc we also saw Jackal, Nilgai, mongoose various deer, monitor etc, but no python. Not sure how good it was in 02, but check my pics on flickr if you like, same username. hope this helps. We stayed in a nice guesthouse just down the road by the big junction, i think it was called Paradise guesthouse

Bikespod, Certainly the situation currently looks good. Hope there is more rainfall coming season.

Deeply saddened

It's just awful to read this. I will look into it and see who I can pester.

I went in November 2005 and I spent there the most amazing and memorable 2 days imaginable. I have never ever been so close to wildlife. It was just mind blowing, almost a surreal experience. There was just this abundance of wildlife and I with nothing else than my bike.

Has any one been recently? What is the water situation? I was intending visiting the Park in March 2010, am I likely to see anything?

News from my guide is that "There is not enough water and hence bird activity is low!"

Still lots of birds

We visited Keoladeo at the beginning of this month, January 2010, and, although there is a huge problem with water, and they are having to pump water into the lakes from below ground there are still a lot of birds to see. There are probably not the huge numbers of each species but if you are interested in birds then you should still pay a visit to Keoladeo. The guides are very good at seeking out the birds, for example our guide knew just where to go to see two different kinds of nightjar.
One point to note though, it was very foggy, and apparently always is the first two weeks in January - not ideal for birdwatching.

cracked earth and carrion at bharatpur

I had gone to bharatpur last weekend. This once magical world of birds is slowly turning into a lifeless desert. There isn't enough water in the park to sustain the resident birds leave alone any migratory ones that happen to pay a visit. Despite the state of affairs at the park, the management's nonchalance and apathy is so saddening.

This makes really depressing reading. Isn't there anything we can do?

i was there a few years ago and was amazed by the sheer number of birds. i had heard of it being really good but was not rpepared for the literally seemed like tens of thousands of waterbirds. they were everywhere! then the next year ie 2008 i went back all agog and having recommended it to oodles of people who joined me with the kids and OMG it was shameful what had happened.
the monsoon notwiuthstanding the local people need the water they say and the dam is left shut or trickling. We will lose a world Heritage site at this rate. Apparently this year the park is still not receiving water properly.
As far as writing to anyone it is probably the Chief Minister of Rajasthan with a copy to the Prime Minister. A major international NGO taking it up would have the desired effect i think. India does not listen to Indians on these issues much yet.
