MUMBAI: The Rann of Kutch and the rain forests of Borneo await nature enthusiasts. The Bombay Natural History Society (BNHS) has organized three nature camps which will enable nature lover's to come in close touch with the wild. The fact that winter is also the season to spot migratory birds is an added incentive.

The BNHS has rolled out plans for nature camp at the Rann of Kutch or the salt desert. In winter, the Rann is home to demoiselle and common crane. Flamingos, pelicans, storks, ibises, spoonbills, a variety of ducks and other waterfowl are also spotted in big numbers. The Rann is also the hunting ground of raptors like the Short-toed Eagle, buzzards, Aquila eagles, six species of falcons and three species of harriers. It is one of the few places where hundreds of harriers could be seen roosting on open-ground at night.The second camp will be organized at Chilka lake, where around 216 species of birds can be spotted. It is also famous for the only know population in India of the Vulnerable and rare Irrawaddy Dolphin. The Bottled-nose Dolphin can also be seen here.

The third nature camp will take the nature lovers to the rain forests in Borneo, Malaysia. Borneo island is also known as the Land of the Hornbills. It is the oldest rain forest in the world and is the only place in the world to see the endangered Borneo Orangutan. The camp will coverBako National Park, Gunung Gading National Park and Mulu National Park.
