Asian Waterbirds Census 2016

15 - 16 January 2016

4 groups were assigned on different locations for the official count in Sabah on volunteer basis. Everyone gathered at KK Wetlands office then followed with a short briefing by Tomoko and Eugene on how to count the waterbirds etc. The count started at 9.30 and ended in the afternoon.

On the 16th, we counted more waterbirds at my favorite spot, Tempasuk Plain, Kota Belud with the gang. Notable species were the Black-tailed Godwit and many Black-winged Stilt. Did not see any Pied Avocet unfortunately. But later in the afternoon, someone reported the Pied Avocet were seen along the road of Kota Belud - Kudat before the junction to Rampayan Laut.
