Hailstorm kills several thousand birds in Narail
Several thousand birds, mostly migratory birds, were killed in 'Anurima Eco Park' in Narail’s Kalia upazila as hailstorm coupled with rain ripped through the country in last few days.
Erfan Ahmed, the managing director of the eco-park, said that heavy rainfall with stormy wind and hailstorm lashed Narail like other parts of the country on Monday and yesterday.
After the storm, they found carcasses of several thousand birds lying scattered in the park, he said.
The park authorities have gathered the dead birds and will bury those, Erfan said.
Khabir Uddin Ahmed, chairman of the eco-park, said that since 2004 different species of birds went to the park in October and stay there for around eight months.
After being announced a sanctuary, more and more birds are coming to the park, said the chairman.
The death of these migratory birds is a huge loss for nature, he added.
