Friday was dry, and several Oriental Pratincoles showed up, the first for a couple of weeks. While I was watching them a gorgeous Red Turtle Dove landed right in front of me. Other noteworthy birds inculded a fly-over Pied Triller and a flock of 20+ Java Sparrows. I've not seen more than 4 together before, so this was a big surprise.
Sunday was also dry. I relocated a Golden-headed (Bright-capped) Cisticola I'd found a month or so ago, this time with a mate. Beautiful, in full breeding plumage, but crap light sadly. Next time. Several Blue-tailed Bee-eaters were around, they have also been away for a while.
White-browed Crake. An abundant species in the rice fields. This cracking bird was showing very well on Sunday.
Cinnamon Bittern Very visible at the moment, often seen flying overhead, sometimes quite high.
Chestnut Munia A very smart adult. Very common and visible at the moment.
Red Turtle Dove A stunning bird when seen well. This one just plonked down in front of me while I was watching some Pratincoles.
Oriental Pratincole (juvenile) Most of the adult plumage features are all but absent in this juvenile (collar, throat patch, red on the bill), except for the red underwing which is completely developed.
