Penampang Paddy Field Part II ~ Black-tailed Godwit

22nd October 2012


I was planning to visit Tempasuk at Kota Belud last Saturday after Jonathan and CK saw the Black-tailed Godwit and Asiatic Dowitcher ! But it was raining the whole day and postponed to next week with the gang. But my instinct was telling me to check again the Penampang paddy field for the Northern Lapwing.

But I go this one upon scanning the field for interesting birds than the usual stuff !


Black-tailed Godwit !

I have only seen this once in Tuaran few years ago and considered scare visitor and passage migrant to North Borneo than the Black-tailed Godwit.

Below is the link for video recorded with Nikon Fieldscope EDG85 + FSA-L2 + Nikon D300s

By the way, Andrew saw again the Black Drongo on the same area with this Black-tailed Godwit this morning. Will try to see if I can get a pics of it tomorrow.

Happy birding !
