commonest waders at tuaran paddy field

2nd august 2008



after sending my wife to her parents' house, drove back to the same spot where i saw a wader wading at one of the paddy field nearby. by looking through my scope, it is confirmed the wood sandpiper has arrived and some of them still wearing their horny breeding plumage :p

from the distance (wish i have zoom eyepiece !), 3 little ringed plover mixing together with spotted and peaceful dove, scaly-breasted and black-headed munia at one of the drier plot.


white-breasted waterhen


moving on to another plot, saw 2 long-toed stint (my favorite wader hahaha) together with common moorhen, intermediate egret and white-breasted waterhen. 2 cinnamon bittern suddenly flew from the bush and landed not far away from me.
