Oriental Reed Warblers used to be common on the river near my apartment, about 7 or 8 singing males or so, but they completely disappeared a couple of years ago.
3 have been singing this spring. At separate locations and not often. Is it just 1 bird moving around? Are they just migrants passing through?
We looked around the rice fields a couple of days hoping to see a few waders and saw precisely zero…
The migration season has fizzled out. Not a vintage one this year…
We checked the rice fields outside town for waders but nothing doing. Just the above Pheasant (which is fairly scarce at least).
No waders or anything else of real interest on the coast although there were a few Ospreys fishing offshore.
The Night Heron had moved to another section of the river yesterday.
