When assured of enough food, hundreds of large, medium and little cormorant, darter, purple and Grey heron, various species of egret, painted, open-billed, white necked and black necked stork, white ibis, spoonbill, night heron and other birds make it their home. The trees are littered with nests and it is not uncommon to find a tree balancing about fifty to sixty nests, all of different species of birds, an altogether interesting visage.

The fort stands surrounded by a wide moat which was once filled with water, making it very difficult for enemies to gain access. The sandy ramparts were bolstered by sandy battlements, strengthening it against the mighty guns of the British rulers.
