Week ending 1st May - IRRI

Amazingly the Peregrine has made a return after I thought it had headed north. Lots of Oriental Pratincoles around now, and literally thousands of Yellow Wagtails, all ssp. tschutschensis. I'm not sure if I've ever actually seen taivana here, though they should occur.

Around the house both Philippine Scops Owl and Philippine Hawk Owl calling regularly, and Philippine Hawk-Cuckoos going demented at ludicrously early hours.

Yellow Wagtail, M. f. tschutschensis. Hundreds in the fields at the moment

Scaly-breasted Munia.

Red Turtle Dove.

Oriental Pratincole. Behaving very territorially at the moment, may be getting ready to breed here.
