News from Hebbal lake

After coming back from my vacation, I have not made trips to any new place. Just had made couple of visits to Hebbal lake. I do not have much to write here except that these photographs have been taken over a period of 2-3 visits. (Note: Click on the photograph to view the larger version)

Grey tit can be seen quite often playing around in sun
Purple heron sitting at its usual place in early morning light.
Brahminy kite hovering around looking for some kill
Ashy prina can always be found busy doing something under bushes. After a while it comes out in open.
Purple rumped sunbirds are very busy during morning. Just wait for a while and you can get it close enough  and get a decent shot. 
One more closeup shot of Purple rumped sunbird. See its face is covered with pollen.
Purple moorhen is very common bird here. 
White-cheeked Barbet can be seen sometimes, though most of the times it is perched high on trees. This time I got it close enough though.
Red-whiskered bulbul is so commonly seen all around Bangalore and Hebbal lake is no different. This time it seems to have got something for breakfast. 
Another shot of Grey tit.
Tickell's flycatcher can be seen sometimes. I have spotted it about 3-4 times at Hebbal.
Tickell's flowerpecker is another bird that is very common here. Wait for some time and it gets very close to you and gives chance to shoot frame filling shots. 
Purple rumped sunbird checking out a flower for some nectar.
Small blue kingfisher has some fixed places where it can be spotted easily. 
Tailor bird can also be seen in plenty, but strangely I haven't able to get more shots of this bird. This is the best that I have got.
