Delight for bird watchers as sanctuary opens after 3 months

HT Correspondent

Gurugram : The state forest department opened the Sultanpur National Park for public on Monday, also observed as Ozone Day. As per the old policy, the national park, which witnesses the arrival of thousands of migratory birds, was to be opened on October 1. But the government brought a new notification on September 5, deciding to open it for public 15 days before on request of bird watchers.

As per the new notification, the national park will now be closed for visitors from June 15 instead of May 1. “This means that the park will remain closed for a period of three months from June 15 to September 15 instead of five months,” said Subhash Yadav, district forest officer (DFO).

The park, earlier known as Sultanpur Bird Sanctuary, is located along Gurugram-Jhajhar road – about 15km from main city.

Also, the forest department has decided to set up or erect a bird hide, which is a round shape hutment with windows fitted with binoculars to watch birds without causing any disturbance to them.
