13th Aug 2011

Little 'eron

 Walk around the patch produced more than expected, with my first Barn Swallow of the autumn, a fly-over Asian Openbill (only my second record on the patch), nice views of Yellow Bittern and Little Heron, and an Asian Barred Owlet being hotly pursued by a flock of Small Minivets, Common Iora and Streak-eared Bulbuls.

The afternoon was spent driving north to Pitchit province to see my wife's family. I managed to pick up a (tarty) year tick in the form of Cinnamon Bittern, plus a couple of Oriental Pratincoles.
