K.Subramanian

ARIYALUR: The huge lake with a sprawling 454 hectares at Karaivetti village near Keezhapazhur in Ariyalur district that has been declared as a bird sanctuary by the Government seven years ago would soon get a facelift, said Collector T.Abraham, here on Wednesday.

Talking to The Hindu here, the Collector said that as many as 91 species of migratory birds including flamingoes, painted storks and spoonbill from countries like Siberia, Tibet, central Asia, and Russia, were coming in large numbers for about eight months beginning from November every year.

The Forest Department had planted nearly 17,000 saplings in the sanctuary.
