waders at likas mudflat

10th october 2008



this area was part of the south china sea before the existing roads was built several years ago and one of the nearest place to see some of the migrant that spends their winter here such as pacific golden plover, whimbrel and whiskered tern.

other species seen this afternoon;
  • pacific reef-egret
  • little egret
  • great egret
  • chinese egret - 3 birds !
  • common sandpiper
  • grey-tailed tattler
  • greater sand-plover
  • little heron
  • purple heron
  • collared kingfisher
  • rock dove
  • spotted dove





great egret


pacific reef-egret


flocks of little with great egret feeding


collared kingfisher


hoping more waders will turn up to this place as the illegal settlement nearby was demolished recently by the government, means less disturbance and rubbish that used to float during high tide would be seen in the future.

who knows new species such as white-faced plover or the rarest spoon-billed sandpiper ?

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

happy birding :o
