Early August

Sunday was the first dry day in a while, and some sun too which was a bonus. Some nice birds showing well, including an obliging Buff-banded Rail, Painted Snipe and a Striated Grassbird (below). One Clamorous Reed Warbler was unusual for the time of year, though maybe I've been missing them because they're silent at this time of year. Quite secretive, very easy to miss.

Wednesday update. First Common Sandpipers of autumn arrived today, also the Cattle Egrets are back after a 2 week absence. A large flock of Island Swiftlets were just ahead of the storm-clouds this afternoon.
