Sewri Jetty is around 10 minutes drive from the Sewri station (which comes in harbor line). Jetty is surrounded by mangrove and also industry. From the edge of jetty you can see mangroves in the foreground and industry in the background. I would have never imaged that I will come to such a place for bird watching. One can say that it is a place where nature and technology live together! Apart from Flamingo, you will also get to see Greater Spotted Eagle, Sandpiper, Heron, Black Bellied Tern, crow and humans!

Before you decide to head there, do check the tide as Flamingos are only seen during low tides.
Sadly, I only happen to admire the dock and ships around as when I was there, it was high tide which means, no flamingos! Still, I had a wonderful time exploring the hidden side of Mumbai.
A break from the buzzing city like Mumbai, Sewri offers you a chance to spend your morning or evening admiring birds!
When: October to March
Time: During Low Tide, Mornings are often the best but if low tide is there during evening, sunset is flamingo can be the best combination
Place: Sewri Jetty, Mumbai
Must Carry: Binoculars, Camera with zoom lens, if you have dslr, Tripod (if doing the evening shoot)
