Popular with birders because the verandah next to the swimming pool gives views over a marsh. Birds such as Cinnamon Bittern and Painted Snipe become active here just before dusk but can be difficult to see.

All the sites in this section are treated, in detail and with precise maps and directions, in my book ‘Finding Birds in North Goa’

If you have any information which you feel would help to update the book, please email me at and I’ll add your observations to these pages
