I seemed to hit it lucky with Thick-billed Warblers this morning, seeing at least four some of which showed very well. Black Baza's had increased to at least four and a stunning male Pied Harrier appeared briefly. Other species seen today but not yesterday included single Watercock, Yellow-bellied Prinia, Painted Stork, Black-naped Oriole, 2 Black-naped Monarch and a Cinnamon Bittern. Apart from Red-wattled Lapwings, the only waders present were two Pintail Snipe, 17 Wood and a single Common Sandpiper.
Also noted this morning were 4 Spreckled-breasted Woodpecker, two Black-capped Kingfisher, 3 Ruddy-breasted Crake, 13 Bronze-winged Jacana, Siberian Rubythroat, 2 Lanceolated Warbler, 15 Red-throated Pipit and two House Sparrows (a locally increasing species).
