Black Bitterns and Forest Wagtail

White-shouldered Starlings
On the way back to Suphanburi we stayed Friday night at Nakhon Sawan, to check out accommodation options for a birding trip to Beung Bhoraphet next month. I spent a couple of hours birding around the bird park on the south side of the lake, as always lots of birds, best three different Black Bitterns and 2 Forest Wagtails. Around the car park at least 60 White-shouldered Starlings were present along with a pair of Speckled-breasted Woodpecker and along the nature trail numerous Black-browed and Oriental Reed Warbler, Dusky Warblers and at least 7 Siberian Rubythroat including several very obliging males feeding on the paths.
