Regular observations were made on the coastal birds caught in the Pillaimadam lagoon by a specially designed nylon net. Blinded birds are used to lure the birds. Gelochelidon nilotica, Sterna bengalensis, S. bergi, S. sandvicensis Sandvicensis and Hydroprongne caspia are some of the common birds caught. Seasonal variation and the species composition were also observed.
