English synonyms:Garganey Teal, Garganey Duck, Crackling Teal, Cricket Teal, Summer Teal
Bird Family :Anatini - Typical Ducks

Remarks :We saw around 6 pairs in the lake. Water level is very low, so many birds are walking instead of swimming. We saw that first they try to move the mussels in mud and after that they put their heads in the water and catch the mussels. - PM
