Asian Dowitchers & a lotta o' Knot

A few hours late afternoon at Khok Kham produced a very enjoyable selection of waders, with many birds advancing into breeding attire.

The highlight was a large flock that consisted of somewhere between 750-1,000 Great Knot along with 10 Red Knot and at least 6 Asian Dowitchers (one in breeding plum.).  Other waders included 50+ Black-tailed Godwit (incl one partial albino bird), 50+ Broad-billed Sandpipers, 100+ Red-necked Stints and seven Ruddy Turnstones.
