Week ending 30th January - IRR, Makiling

Another quiet week on the farms with little movement to report. The Green Sandpiper and Peregrine are still present, as are the Red Turtle Doves. A flyover Pied Triller enlivened Friday's cycle ride, but there was little else of note.

On Sunday I tried again for thrushes on the lower trails of Makiling. Too many people trekking made this an impossible task, but I did hear Yellow-breasted Fruit-Dove for the first time on Makiling.

Around the ISH compound both Philippine Scops Owl and Philippine Hawk Owl are becoming more vocal.

Wood Sandpiper. About the only winter wader that has been here in any numbers this year.

A male Painted Snipe seems quite nervous in the presence of this large monitor

One of several Little Egrets with unusual amounts of yellow in the legs that have been present since last May.
