A wander around the patch at this time of year is always accompanied by low expectations, with no migrant interest to be had, and many species finishing breeding.

Today's visit was my first since April: busy with other things + with low wet season expectations = neglected patch!

The highlight today was the presence of a scruffy breeding-plumaged Chinese Pond Heron. CPH is a winter visitor to Thailand, so this is pretty unusual. There was one present on the the patch last summer, but I've only come across one other mid-summer record in Thailand.
