After a while a Pin Striped Tit Babbler flew in quite close to the boardwalk. I manage to get some shots and i noticed that it is not as wary as the one in the forest....
This is the shot, the mother and chick,
After i wasted the chance, the bird hardly came out again. I decided to go for lunch. As i was packing my stuff into the car, i heard a juvenile flycatcher calling from the bushes besides the parking lot. I decided to give it one last try. I manage to get 2 shots...here is the best..
After taking our lunch, i went to Teluk Air Tawar for the waders. The full tide is at 5.45 p.m. and it's already 4. So i guess its a good timing...
When i arrived at the rivermouth, lots of people at the nearby stall and so do the waders on the mudflats. So i decided to take some shot and give it a count. Here are some of the shot...
Little egret and common redshanks,
Lesser sand plovers...one stil in breeding plumage
Common sandpiper (left) and Curlew Sandpiper
As usual, do correct me if the identifications are wrong. The total count was,
Eurasian Curlews - 7
Lesser Sand Plovers - 17
Little egret - 1
Common redshank - 10
Red necked Stint - 10
Many of them left unidentified as i don't have any scope and the lighting was too harsh for a better view of the bird. Anyway, there will be more of them coming and i'll surely come and visit this place again..
note: some name corrected. Thanks to Dave Bakewell for his kind comment..
