There is good news for bird lovers of Banaskantha as more than 300 Egyptian vultures were spotted in the district on Tuesday. These birds were rarely spotted in the last several years in the area.

"Even the Birds Conservation Society of Gujarat (BCSG) has not mentioned such a big colony of vultures in the last several editions of their journal 'Vihangam," an executive member of BCSG and a teacher at RR Mehta Science College Suresh Prajapati said.
