6th january 2008
woke up late today as had ceremony at my parents house last night and was undecided either go birding or continue surfing the internet. then i remembered that few birders at brunei found another vagrant from north asia, northern lapwing at wasan rice field !
only few sighting of this bird in borneo so left around 3 pm alone to tempasuk rice field again hoping who knows to get the same bird hahahah.
after spending few hours looking at some waders, managed to get quite closed with this brown shrike even though it kept on flying from one post to the other each time i walked toward the bird.
at last it perched for few less than a minute and sufficient enough for me to captured this brown shrike before it flew off again with the coming herd of oxes ...
digiscoped with nikon ED82, srb-griturn adapter and fujifilm f31d
and no northern lapwing today ...
