Bellanwilla – Attidiya Bird Sanctuary

Trekking along the path by the Bolgoda canal that runs through the sanctuary, one can enjoy the gently flowing water and silence is broken by the splashing of a fish or a cormorant as it dives in to make a catch or as a monitor lizard slips into the water while one can hear the early morning fishing eagles’ cry as they fly around their nests. The enchantment here is especially experienced early in the morning where a thin blanket of mist hangs over the waters of its lakes and canals as the sun peeks through, gently waking up life in the sanctuary.

This 372-hectare sanctuary just about 12 km from Colombo, is all about thick mangrove growth and swamps that supports many species of local and water bird-life, butterflies and fish. It is a calm and peaceful retreat for the enthusiastic nature lover to spend some hours enjoying nature’s blessings. This Sanctuary is home to around 40 different migratory birds of over 100 species in total that include Pelicans, Ibis, Storks and many others including reptiles that include the cobra, rat snake and water snakes.

Some of the birds that can be seen here are: The Asian Open bill, White-Breasted Kingfisher, Ashy Prinia, Purple Heron, Blyth’s Reed Warbler, Pallas Grass hopper Warbler, White-Browed Prinia, White Ibis, Lesser Whistling Teal, Stork-Billed Kingfisher, Black-Headed Oriole, Purple Coot, Common, Black winged Stilt, Spot Billed Pelican, White-breasted Water hen, Ruddy Crake and many other lovely species.
