This lone bird appeared for the very first time at Bhigwan Bird Sanctuary, Western India, in Dec 2021. It hung out with a large flock of Bar-headed geese (who are regular visitors there) and left with them in Jan/Feb 2022. This bird appears to be a Taiga Bean Goose based on the markings on its beak - the URL leads to a PDF download of the comparative identification of the Taiga & Tundra Bean geese / goose. (?) :)

The Amur Falcon is an amazing (crow-sized) bird that travels roughly 22,000 km every year. Starting from the Amur river basin area of Siberia, Mongolia and China, south across the Himalayas, to NE India. Then across the breadth of India, over the Indian Ocean to end at Southern Africa - the Kruger National Park - where they stay until the season changes. They then head back the on the same route. The link (below) shows the path taken by one female that was tagged in "Puching", Manipur, India.
This bird was photographed in Western India, where they pause briefly to eat and ready themselves for the ocean crossing
