"Perhaps, time for a nail cut?"
Merlin is a small falcon that winters in Little Rann of Kutch. While I saw plenty of kestrels, occasionally came across the odd merlin.

Short-toed snake eagle in flight
Was happy to get an in flight shot of this raptor. December is a great time for birding in LRK. In the 3 days that I spent here, was able to see plenty of raptors- STSE, steppe, eastern imperial eagle, merlin, kestrel, laggar falcon, harriers (marsh, montagu's), peregrine, short eared owl, thousands of flamingos, the lovely common cranes and not to mention, plenty of the resident bird species. Was hoping for a glimpse of the MacQueen's bustard unfortunately it eluded us. Among mammals, was able to see foxes, jackals, wild asses, nilgai, jungle cat, though wasn't able to catch any of the desert foxes. All in all, a great birding trip and I am looking forward to go again this winter.

Peregrine falcon
Crawled and crawled, couldn't get any closer! Move too close, will fly 500 meters farther away again. And repeat!

Nishant Parekh Awesome. Nothing else in the entire frame!
