Just east of Old Goa, the lily-covered
Carambolin Lake has an enormous amount of waterfowl, many Egrets and
Heron, Bronze-Winged, Pheasant-Tailed Jacana and thousands of exotic
species such as Comb Duck and Cotton Pygmy-Goose.
Close to Carambolim is the Ciba-Geigy Chemical-Works, which has created a pleasant nature reserve. Here one may sight Open-billed Storks, Purple and Grey Heron, Little Cormorant and Marsh Harriers.
