Higher water level than usual. Lockgates of the barrage closed - which has a major impact of water levels and the location of birds. Only about 500 birds remained in the actual lake. The rest presumably had dispersed over the Teesta river. The Common Goldeneyes and the Chinese Spot-billed Ducks that were seen earlier this month were not found.
