Cenang Reed Beds – Langkawi

I went out again to the Cenang Reed Beds this morning. As soon as I got there, it started off with a light drizzle, so I hid under a tree for a while until it stopped, and then carried on. It is raining nearly every day now. And there is no pattern to it. I don’t mind if it rains in the afternoon like it oughta, but it rains any time of the day with no real system.

Paddyfield Pipit
Paddyfield Pipit (Anthus rufulus)

This young Paddyfield Pipit looked like he had just head-butted a pile of manure.

Purple Heron
Purple Heron ( Ardea purpurea )

Lesser Whistling Duck
Lesser Whistling Duck (Dendrocygna javanica)

There was a flock of about 15 flying around most of the morning.

Red-wattled Lapwing
Red-wattled Lapwing (Vanellus indicus atronuchalis)

I can’t stop taking photos of these now I know they are the local sub-species atronuchalis.

Brown Shrike
Brown Shrike (Lanius cristatus)

Maybe  Munia
Maybe Munia

There was a flock of about 40 flying around.

Maybe Wood Sandpipers
Pacific golden plover (Pluvialis fulva)

Again, a flock of about forty flying around. Edit: Thanks to Khaleb Yordan for the ID help. 🙂
