Last Morning at Petchaburi

Indian Roller

For our final morning (Jan 7th) at Petchaburi we head just south of the town and stopped at a small reed fringed roadside pool and adjacent rice paddies. There were huge numbers of weavers around the pool, with perhaps 4-500 present, mostly Baya but also at least 30 Streaked and 20 Golden Weaver. Also amongst the flock were three Chestnut Munia and a single Red Avadavat. On the pond were three Bronze-winged Jacana, Little Grebe, several Moorhen and in the reeds at least six Yellow Bittern, several Oriental and Black-browed Reed Warbler and two Ruddy-breasted Crakes. In the adjacent rice paddies there were many Plain Prinia and Zitting Cisticola, a Lanceolated Warbler, Eastern Marsh Harrier, ten Red-throated Pipits and a two Purple Heron.
