Eye-browed Thrush

Paddyfield Pipit

A couple of days ago I suspected that I had flushed a thrush of one off the paths through a thick area of scrub on the patch , this morning I slowly walked along the same path and almost at the same spot were two Eye-browed Thrush feeding quietly in the shade under a scrub thicket, a pleasant winter surprise.

Plenty of warblers around the site this morning, with around 32 Oriental Reed, 23 Dusky, 12 Black-browed, 9 Pallas's Grasshopper, 3 Lanceolated and one Thick-billed. Waders totals this morning 60 Black-winged Stilt, 39 Wood Sandpiper, 20 Common Snipe, 19 Grey-headed Lapwing, 7 Pintail Snipe, 2 Marsh Sandpiper, Common and Green Sandpiper. Also recorded were 2 Pink-necked Green Pigeon, 2 Watercock, 3 Ruddy-breasted Crake, 3 Purple Heron, 5 Yellow Bittern, 2 Freckled-breasted Woodpecker, 6 White-shouldered Starling, 3 Black Baza, 8 Golden Weaver and 3 Red Avadavat.
