Khijadiya Bird Satury! Located at the watershed of River Ruparel and Kalindri at the North East coastal region of Jamnagar district in the Gulf of Kutch, is a very special and unique ecosystem. In Khijadiya, the migratory birds of the Eurasiam Continent find both freshwater and marine habitat for nesting and resting. The unique ecosystem is partly man made and partly Nature's bounty. Reclamation bunds were built during the British era to prevent saline ingression in the soil and as a result two seperate lakes were formed by water that drains from the Rivers Ruparel and Kalindri. These lake provide freshwater ecosystem during winter when the Birds Migrate to this area and the Kutch sea coast with its mangroves and marshy coast provides yet another ideal destination for migratory birds.
The sanctury is spread over both the lakes and the sea coast and is in two parts. One part is known as Dhunvav and the other is called Jambuda after the villeges near which they are located.The MArshes and the Creeks on the Marine side supports Mangroves and slots online spielen other marine casino vegetation while the sanctury on the land's side has the native variety of Babul, Prosopis and other shrubs that support a large fauna other than the avian variety.
