Brown Noddy

 I don't know how many records there are of Brown Noddy in Thai waters but there certainly are not many.
Together with 5 Expat birders here in Thailand we hired a boat in search of one that had been reported in the Paktaley area.
None of us had seen it anywhere so it turned out to be a successful and fun trip for all.
The Noddy, being a tern, was feeding alongside primarily White-winged, Whiskered and Common Terns. Schools of small fish are common in the area about 10km from the shore line.
It wasn't easy to hold the camera still in choppy waters but some frames turned out ok.

The Brown Noddy is also very rare now here in Peninsula Malaysia. Your images are so much better than what I could managed during my first encounter with this species earlier this year.
