Khao Sam Roi Yot

First morning of birding 2011 today, with an early morning trip to Khao Sam Roi Yot National Park. I was looking for Manchurian Reed Warbler but only managed ORIENTAL and BLACK-BROWED Reed Warbs, as well as a few Think-bills. The trip got year listing underway (my very modest 2010 total was 445 across Asia, the UK, and USA). Highlights this morning included EASTERN MARSH HARRIER, PIED KINGFISHER, LONG-TOED and TEMMINCK'S STINTS, PURPLE HERON, YELLOW BITTERN and INDOCHINESE BUSHLARK.
