Summary of Thailand leg of Wader Quest.

Posted Tuesday 20th November 2012 at 20:40 by Rick and Elis
Thailand was an obvious starting point for our quest because of the Spoon-billed Sandpiper, what better way to get the project off to a flying start with our first trip away from the UK.

We arrived in Thailand with a WQ list of 18, we saw 36 species of wader, of which 28 were new and left Thailand with a WQ list of 46.

Species seen: (* new for WQ list)
Pheasant-tailed Jacana*
Bronze-winged Jacana*
Greater Painted Snipe*
Black-winged Stilt*...

Summary of UAE leg of Wader Quest

Posted Sunday 18th November 2012 at 13:05 by Rick and Elis
A very short time was available so we had to make it count, and thanks to Tommy Pedersen the UAE recorder and long standing friend of ours we did.

We had few target species, but due to a piece of good fortune we were lucky enough to add Sociable Lapwing to that list of target species. They are very scarce visitors and we were extremely lucky that they stayed for our visit, it's a shame the Caspian Plover wasn't so obliging, leaving well before our arrival.

We arrived...
