arriving on the island by ferry you pay the very small local fee to enter the reserve. We were greeted immediately by Uday who offered to take us on a guided boat tour of the mangrove. We'd arrived at 9am and despite fears we might have missed all the birds there were plenty to see. It was a delight. Uday was invaluable pointing out the various species. We were a little stung by the suggested price - 1500 rupees each - so I advise negotiating how much to pay in advance of getting on the boat. We felt that 700 rupees would have been more appropriate.
