Pictures From The Paddy Field

13th - 22th Feb 2010

Intensive searched for the Grass Owl in Tuaran and Long-billed Plover at Penampang recently did not produced any satisfying results. The Long-billed Plover was found by Denis at Penampang with CK Leong making this area as one of the hot spot for migratory species comparable with Tempasuk Plain that turned up recently such as:
  • Great Bittern
  • Common Teal
  • Common Kestrel
  • Peregrine Falcon
  • Long-billed Plover
  • Dunlin
  • Temminck's Stint
  • Buff-banded Rail
  • Sand Martin
  • Pied Wagtail
  • Black Drongo
  • Black-collared Starling

Collection of pictures digiscoped with Nikon Fieldscope ED82, FSA-L1 adapter and Nikon D300s at both places

Brahminy Kite

Chinese Egret

Little Ringed Plover

Wood Sandpiper

Long-toed Stint

Straited Grassbird

I will be off for few nights at the mountain next week. Happy birding :)

In our last tour of Tuaran, we have found the Tuaran is also suitable for one day trip and there is village named as "MENGKABONG WATER VILLAGE" which seems to be attractive. We stayed there for two days; it was located at really beautiful point.
