8th May 2009

Made a trip to Khok Kham early morning in the hope of catching some northward bound summer plumaged waders, however I seem to have left it too late, seeing just two distant sandplover spp. and one glorious, but very brief, summer plumaged Pacific Golden Plover in flight. There was lots of other stuff to enjoy, such as good numbers of black-crowned night herons returning to a few small, mixed heronries.

Black-crowned Night Heron

Javan Pond Heron (all the Chinese PH's seem to have left)

Collared Kingfisher

White-vented Myna

Little Cormorant

I find it hard to say "no" to stilts....

Going to Thailand mid-December '09 to mid-January '10 and will be travelling around quite a bit but starting with 4 days in Bangkok. It seems there's a fair amount to get the birdlist started.
