Mumbai and its surrounding areas has seen a high rise in the number of flamingoes coming to the city this year.

Probably due to the fact that there aren't enough people exploring the Thane creek due to the lockdown, added with the fact that only a handful of fishermen are taking their boats out, the birds have returned. And How!

PTI photographer Kunal Patil managed to get some lovely images of the birds in their natural habitat

This year, from the images that we have, we estimate around 1.50 lakh."
