Eurasian Thick knee’s are great subjects to study, they don’t move at all, they are confident on their camouflage. Ranganathittu bird sanctuary is a great place to study them, took a boat safari and made this quick sketch of them. During studies, i prefer using charcoal sticks for studies, it’s easy to carry them. Put them a small box, papers rolls, a hat, a binocular and bottle of water. I am ready to go!
