Local walks    India 2012              
Return to the main 2012 pictures page                      Back to main India pictures page        
My main regular walk was up through SVU campus past NCC Nagar between the guesthouse and the distant hills. Many of my bird photos were taken there. I got to know some of the families who lived on the small road on the University campus that led to NCC Nagar. Other walks were in the Temple Dairy farm up past the rail crossing, or to the village of Thumulagunta, or out towards the hills in the other direction beyond the village of Upparapalli and Upparapalli checkpost on the bypass road.
