kota belud paddy field

12th october 2008

took few hours birding at my favorite patch this afternoon hoping to see and picture the common kestrel which i saw last year with karim and also looking for suitable place to conduct field trip for the coming wader workshop by david bakewell next week from the 17-19th october with few participants from west malaysia, sarawak, brunei and from sabah itself :)

nothing special just the common winter visitor and resident species. light was good so took few pictures without cable release and frankly speaking, my hand shakes a lot !
