Week ending 14th Sept - IRRI

A good week on the farms, with the Marsh Sandpiper and Black-winged Stilts hanging around. The rains continue, and rallids are much in evidence. The Long-toed Stints from last week didn't linger, but they have been replaced by large numbers of Yellow Wagtails. Oriental Pratincoles and Blue-tailed Bee-eaters are still around. On Saturday afternoon,while walking the dogs (so sans camera unfortunately) I relocated the Peregrine from two weeks ago on the upland farms. This time it was perched on a pylon and was quite clearly of the resident ernesti race, my first on the farms.
