Every year, brown-headed and black-headed gulls arrive at the Yamuna Ghat.
The gulls come for breeding to the banks of Yamuna and Ganga.
The Nigambodh Ghat, on the banks of the Yamuna river, is a haven for bird watchers and photographers.
Not just gulls, hundreds of birds from over two dozen different species make Yamuna their temporary home during winters.
The birds migrate to the subcontinent to escape Russia’s cold weather.
The Yamuna wetlands become a host to these birds until the climatic conditions are stabilized in their homelands.
