Cenang Reed Beds – Langkawi.

29th November, 2020. There were a few clouds early this morning but the weather cleared up later on. We were looking around for a little while, and then Thomas heard a cat in the bushes. I thought it was a bird, being used to the sound of Green Catbirds in Australia. There was a kitten inside a thick bush, so Thomas went in and rescued the poor little thing. He took it back home and came back later on. Meanwhile, I am slogging through the mud and have to pick off about half a dozen leeches off my feet. It ended up being a good day. We had a trip through the sawah and then back to the coffee shop for an Americano to end off an interesting morning of birding and animal rescue.

“The Oriental reed warbler (Acrocephalus orientalis) is a passerine bird of eastern Asia belonging to the reed warbler genus Acrocephalus. It was formerly classified as a subspecies of the great reed warbler (A. arundinaceus) of the western Palearctic.” (wiki). This was a tick for me. Keep em coming.
