One of the rare vagrant for Borneo with only few records from Brunei and Sabah and was found yesterday by Ck Leong while searching for the probably a Pheasant-tailed Jacana sighted by Roger last Sunday. Luckily the bird was still there when the gang arrived this morning hehehe :)
Size is bigger than the resident Common Moorhen and Black-backed Swamphen and only single bird seen today among the other species such as the Wandering Whistling Duck, Whiskered Tern, Striated Grassbird and Cinnamon Bittern.
Digiscoped with Nikon Fieldscope ED82, FSA-L1 adapter and D300s.
Common Moorhen with Common Coot
Ck, Ben and Karim busy shooting the Common Coot
My Borneo list has reached 425 species now and I received my Borneo 400 badge from Ck today too :)
Happy birding !
