2nd record for Sabah and 3rd record for Borneo, single Pied Avocet was found in 2011 at Mengkabong Wetland, Tuaran that lasted for a week http://horukuru.blogspot.my/2011/12/pied-avocet-recurvirosta-avosetta.html and yesterday while looking for Ducks and Stilts, found this Avocet next on the road at Tempasuk Plain, Kota Belud.
After alerted the gang, drove back home and got a few messages and they found at least 9 Pied Avocet on the same spots near sunset. What a record!

Hope it will last until the end of the migratory season in April. Happy birding!
