Uncommon winter visitor to North Borneo and this is my 2nd time seeing this beauty at the paddy field mixing together with Long-toed Stint, Wood Sandpiper, Javan Pond Heron and Whiskered Tern yesterday.
Plus new lifer when my friends saw the Oriental Plover, a rare migrant to Borneo and 1st record for Sabah in the morning, it was worth the wait in the evening making up my Borneo list to 454 !
Digiscoped with Nikon Fieldscope EDG85 via FSA-L2 DSLR Photo Adapter on Nikon D300s
Good birding and will try to get good pictures of the Oriental Plover before the 3rd Borneo Bird Festival at Sepilok :)
