common redshank at lok kawi

27th august 2008



arrived a bit late at lok kawi because there was a traffic jammed around kota kinabalu city due to the rehearsal for the coming independence day for malaysia :) when i arrived, karim was busy taking pictures of the waders and it was quite warm today with blue sky.

planned to take pictures of the red-necked stint with orange flag sighted by karim few days ago and from the info he received sent by
australasian waders studies group
, the bird was tagged around january 1990 in victoria, australia and might be first for borneo :)

but no stint with flag today and some of the birds were seen at lok kawi beach:
  • pacific golden plover
  • little egret
  • little tern
  • grey-tailed tattler
  • ruddy turnstone
  • lesser sand plover
  • greater sand plover
  • red-necked stint
  • common sandpiper
  • collared kingfisher
  • little ringed plover

common greenshank

digiscoped with nikon fieldscope ED82, srb-griturn Mk II adapter and fujifilm f31d

happy birding !
