I made it bright and early to Huay Mai Teng Reservoir on Saturday morning. I was hoping for Savanna Nightjars but alas no. Nevertheless there was lots of activity. I rather fancy there were some Richard's Pipits in the scrub but I didn't get enough of a look at them or a shot to say with any certainty. There were definitely Paddyfield Pipit, Oriental Skylark, Indochinese Bushlark, Small and Oriental Pratincoles and all the usual suspects. Lots of photo opportunities especially a couple of courting Oriental Skylarks who obliged for the camera.
There were fleeting shots of a few birds including Yellow-vented Bulbul and Bright-capped Cisticola. An aerial Painted Snipe was just too quick and there was an unidentified little brown job which would have been a new species.....and I hope to get it next time! Add in many Plain Prinias.......a great morning.
