Abstract:

More than 50 species of wetland dependent birds have been observed roosting and breeding in the lake (pers. obsv.). Some of the submerged and emergent hydrophytes along the littoral and little above the littoral zone in the lake are Hydrilla verticillata, Potamogeton sp., Nelumbo nucifera, Lotus stellata, Typha angustifolia and Oryza rufipogon. On 2 January 2015, a juvenile and three adult individuals of Ruddy-breasted Crake Porzana fusca were sighted in the marsh and swampy area to the littoral zone of the Dalpat Sagar Lake upon entry from its South-eastern direction. The sighting frequency of this species along with young chicks was noted to be high in the month of May and June (summer). Frequent sightings were recorded near to Pujari Munda paddy field opposite to the bund of Dalpat Sagar Lake in the north.
