21st March - Khok Kham

A late afternoon visit to secure Chris a few more year ticks before heading to New Zealand was semi-successful...the waders were widely spread and we consequently failed to find the Spoon-billed sandpiper, however we did find a LITTLE STINT, which is a good local rarity, plus a small group of c.10 of ASIAN DOWITCHERS.  There was also a very impressive flock of GREAT and RED KNOT - perhap 500 birds strong, and with Red Knot accounting for approximately one third of the birds.

Many of the Waders were attaining summer plumage, so it was great to see summer plum R-n Stints and Broad-billed Sandpipers!
