Sunday, December 9, 2012
Highlights of the last couple of mornings was the presence of three species of weaver around the patch, with a flock of 15 Streaked both mornings, a scattering of Golden and a flock of at least 120 Baya. With one of the paddies having been recently ploughed and flooded, there was a fresh batch of waders onto the site which included single Spotted Redshank, four Temminck's Stint and 23 Grey-headed Lapwing. Other commoner waders included 12 Marsh, 3 Common and 30 Wood Sandpiper, 15 Little-ringed Plover, 9 Pacific Golden Plover and 120 Black-winged Stilt. Other species also recorded were a single Grey-headed Canary Flycatcher, Asian Brown Flycatcher, Hoopoe and two Spreckled-breasted Woodpeckers.
