Rarities!

The dry season is just around the corner and with it comes the opportunity to see some global rarities. On the 11th I had my first trip for the season in search of Spoon-billed Sandpiper. 4 Germans were on a 10 day birding trip to Thailand and they asked me to help them with the waders. It worked out real well and it didn't take long to locate this lone bird.



Each year we have a fair number of Nordmann's Greenshanks over wintering. This time we found 12 individuals.



The 3rd rarity is a bird not to be counted on as it is a passage migrant. We were fortunate enough to come across a single bird: Asian Dowitcher.
