Siberian Gulls at Patratu Dam

Since I was in Ranchi to meet with some family members, I wanted to visit a few places in and around Ranchi. One of these places was Patratu Dam which is a short drive from the main city. This is a good place to watch migratory birds however during my visit to this place, I only saw Siberian Gulls. Photographing these birds was a challenge due to shooting handheld from a moving boat. Equipment used was the Canon 7D and Tamron 150-600mm G2 lens. There were alot of out of focus shots not only due to the movement of the boat but also taking into account the weight of my camera and lens combination but also got some great shots. Here is a short selection of shots of Siberian Gulls which migrate from Russia during the Winters.
