A study by Bird Conservation Nepal (BCN) confirmed increased number of migratory birds by more than 2,000 at Jagdispur Lake in Kapilvastu district, western Nepal. The bird watchers deployed as a part of annual bird count at the lake have counted thousands of birds belonging to four species such as Common Coot (5,100) Northern Pintail (2,800) and Lesser Whistling Duck (1,500 ) this year, including 1,257 Common Teal, 2,130 Red-crested Pochard, 158 Ferruginous Duck, 265 Comman Pochard and 39 Tufted Duck. The rich biodiversity in the lake was in verge of collapse a few years back due to massive commercial fishing.
