The mangroves on the sides of the container terminal road is the habitat of several species of migratory birds round the year. They can be spotted before 11 a.m and after 5 p.m. If you like bird photography, do not miss out the mangroves in and around the adjacent islands of kochi city (varapuzha, devasampadam, kadamakudy, moolampally, kothad etc), which are rich in flora and fauna. There are public boats plying to these areas. Hiring a taxi from the city is another option. There are bus services from the high court bus stand as well.
