Week ending 22nd January - IRRI

A quiet week with most of my birding being short afternoon sallies to the fields and wandering around the staff housing complex. Very little new to report. The Whiskered Tern flock is growing and is now close to 100 birds. Common Sandpipers also seem to be congregating in groups, but very few other waders are about. The Peregrine remains on the pylons .

Night birds are becoming more vocal, and I hear Philippine Scops Owl, Philippine Hawk-Owl and Philippine Nightjar on a daily basis from my house.
