Terek Sandpiper and Greater Painted-Snipe, Donggang area, August 7th

Dapeng Bay
Shorebird habitat at Dapeng Bay, August 8th. It appears that the mangroves are being allowed to regenerate at this site, but for now the pools are still suitable for passage waders.

With August already a week old, I figured it was finally time to brave the excessive heat and try and find some shorebirds. Having added the vast majority of East Asia’s regular waders to the year list back in February in Thailand, my hit list for fall migration in Taiwan comprises a handful of the more easterly migrants, namely Sharp-tailed Sandpiper, Terek Sandpiper, and Grey-tailed Tattler, as well as that widespread but elusive rice-field lurker Greater Painted-Snipe.

Dapeng Bay is one of those places that still somehow retains some interest as a wader site, despite huge amounts of human encroachment. The area where I’ve had the most luck in the past with finding shorebirds is along the eastern side of the bay, where an expanse of open mud and pools always seems to hold something of interest during migration season (I’ve had Asian Dowitcher, Great Knot and Chinese Egret here in the past). Mangroves seem to be re-establishing themselves at this spot since my last visit in September 2014 – it’s not clear whether this is deliberate or accidental, but it can only be a good thing in general environmental terms that the mangroves are making a comeback, even if it will lead to reduced open mud for the shorebirds.

When I arrived at about 8.30am it was already stiflingly hot, with barely a breath of wind, and that milky-sky smog which is common in these parts in winter but unfortunately without the accompanying cooler temperatures. A cycle road skirts the eastern edge of the area, from which the pools can easily be scanned (Google Maps location). I fairly quickly located one of my year list targets, an energetically feeding Terek Sandpiper. Other waders were more lethargic in the heat – they included several near full summer-plumaged Mongolian Plovers, a mixed party of Common Greenshanks and Common Redshanks, and about 15 Long-toed and 2 Red-necked Stints.

On the strength of an eBird report of 12 Greater Painted-Snipes just a few days ago, I then drove a few kilometers inland to a low-lying area of rice fields and boggy grassland (Google Maps location). Literally the first bird I saw when I stopped my scooter was a Greater Painted-Snipe – apparently a brightly-plumaged adult female – which I watched in flight (unfortunately without binoculars, which were still in my bag), until it plummeted back into the marshy grassland I had flushed it from, not to be seen again. This turned out to be a lucky break, as it was the sole individual of this species I saw during my visit. Further interest in the area was provided by a Ruddy-breasted Crake feeding out in the open in a ditch, an Oriental Pratincole, a Barred Buttonquail flushed from under my feet as I took a walk through the grass, and ridiculous numbers of Red Collared-Doves (at least 100).

Finally, I had some nice views of a flock of some 15 Indian Silverbills, feeding in weeds along the roadside – an established “exotic” in Taiwan, and one which – given the slim pickings at this time of year – I will feel no guilt at adding to my year list.

Large Cuckooshrike, Maolin, July 23rd

At this time of year, when birding is in the doldrums, birders often develop interests in other forms of wildlife to bridge the long gap until autumn migration begins. Unfortunately, while at a certain level I can appreciate butterflies, dragonflies, and even plants, I don’t find myself getting excited about them in the slightest. July is therefore a month to be endured, not enjoyed – doubly so in southern Taiwan where the temperature is swelteringly hot 24 hours a day.

My choices this Saturday morning were to stay at home, stay cool, and get bored, or head out and get very sweaty, sunburned, and probably also bored, but at least stand a small chance of seeing a bird or two. I opted to go to Maolin, with two year list targets in mind: Taiwan Blue Magpie and Taiwan Bamboo Partridge. The site is not only quite reliable for these species but is also only an hour or so by scooter from my house in north Kaohsiung.

I didn’t leave the house until 7.45am, so it was already hot (31C/88F and 70% humidity), and judging by the clear blue sky and bright sunshine, things would only get worse as the day wore on. Unfortunately, Maolin doesn’t really offer any respite from the heat, as it is very much in the foothills rather than the mountains. Still, being surrounded by trees rather than concrete does take the edge off the temperatures a little.

After a very hot scooter ride, I parked near the small waterfall just below the De-En Gorge guesthouse (to get there, take the minor road on the right, opposite the fire station, 3.5km from the start of the Maolin valley). In the hills above the De-En Gorge, a network of old concrete communications roads offer easy access to patches of woodland, scrub, and more open areas. In winter, the area is teeming with thrushes, and roving flocks of Taiwan mid-montane resident and endemic birds. However, perhaps unsurprisingly for a hot mid-morning in July, I saw virtually nothing at all along the first 2 kilometers of my walk. But being out and about sure beats sitting at home in my apartment, and it was good to see the area more or less unchanged since my last visit 18 months ago.

Bird activity improved a little along the second half of the trail, and I finally came across a small feeding flock containing half a dozen Grey-cheeked Fulvettas, two White-bellied Erpornis, two Black-naped Monarchs, a male Grey-chinned Minivet, and a pair of Bronzed Drongos. While standing there enjoying the remnants of the flock, a harsh call made me look up just in time to see a Large Cuckooshrike fly in and land in a tree directly over my head. This was unexpected to say the least – this bird is a very scarce resident in Taiwan (although common in other parts of its range), and one that’s been a prominent “gap” on my Taiwan list for quite some time. The bird lingered in the tree for quite some time, giving me fairly good views, while a second individual could be heard responding to its calls but didn’t come into view.

I confess to not feeling especially excited about the Large Cuckooshrike, as I find myself not exactly bubbling with enthusiasm for my Taiwan life list at the moment – I am far more focused on my World Year List (and I’ve seen plenty of Large Cuckooshrikes elsewhere this year). However in July, you take whatever birds you can get, and I left the area feeling somewhat satisfied even though I had missed both of my year list “targets”, and in fact really didn’t see very much else at all.

Taiwan Endemics at Tengjhih, June 26th

IMG_6157 (2)
View from the roadside at Tengjhih National Forest, altitude around 1500 meters.

Returning to Taiwan felt like a homecoming. We never “clicked” with Vietnam, and for various reasons found ourselves drawn back to the eternally under-appreciated Beautiful Isle. We’ll be here until just before Christmas, meaning there should be plenty of time to get lots of birding done throughout the autumn migration period.

For now, however, it’s summer. In south Taiwan, that means constant very hot and humid weather, punctuated by the occasional craziness of a typhoon. The mountains can at least provide some respite from the heat, as well as a chance to get reacquainted with some of Taiwan’s endemic birds. Just a few days after we arrived, I took the first available opportunity to get up early and head out to my favorite highland location – Tengjhih National Forest.

Quite a high level of dedication is required to make the most of a trip like this in summer. First of all, getting there from Kaohsiung by scooter takes almost two hours, and seeing as it gets light shortly after 5.00am, a very early start is required. As it turned out, I didn’t leave the house until nearly 5, and after an obligatory coffee/breakfast stop at a 7-11, it was almost 7.30am by the time I arrived at the end of the mountain road at Tengjhih. A further ordeal awaits once the birding is over, as leaving Tengjhih at lunchtime means riding home through the lowlands in an inferno of 34C heat, blazing sunshine, and high humidity.

There are two main high-altitude areas one can visit at Tengjhih. The forest park itself has been closed since Typhoon Morakot devastated the area in 2009, meaning that the best areas here are still inaccessible. However, I’ve seen plenty of good birds in the past along the entrance trail, which starts shortly after the end of the paved road at Km 18 and runs for about a kilometer through excellent primary forest. This area was my first stop today, but being midsummer it was predictably quiet apart from the welcome appearance of a couple of local specialities – Yellow Tit, which is reliable at Tengjhih, and Rusty Laughingthrush.

A few kilometers back down the road, a network of mid-elevation walking trails can be accessed from the village. The habitat is somewhat fragmented here, but plenty of good birds are lurking including most of the expected mid-altitude species – although a visiting birder would be extremely fortunate to see them all on a single visit. Today I enjoyed the likes of Vivid Niltava and White-bellied Green Pigeon, and a lucky close-up view of a Black-necklaced Scimitar-Babbler through a gap in the dense scrub. The latter species is a fairly common Taiwan endemic but is a notorious skulker, so I was pleased to get it safely onto the year list on my first visit to the mountains.

With just 24 species recorded during my four-and-a-half hour visit, there wasn’t the variety one would expect here in winter, but there was enough bird activity to keep things interesting. Two Taiwanese mountain endemics that one can hardly miss here are Steere’s Liocichla and Taiwan Sibia, which are both attractive and abundant, while Rufous-faced Warbler, Rufous-capped Babbler and White-tailed Robin are all very common species which seem a lot easier to find on Taiwan than elsewhere.

A few notable birds joined the “heard-only” list for the day. Collared Owlet must surely hold the record for being the East Asian bird with the lowest seen-to-heard ratio, with Large Hawk-Cuckoo probably not far behind in the rankings. True to form, both of these species were vocal today but didn’t show themselves, despite (or perhaps because of?) a large crowd of photographers trying for the owlet along the road at Km 6. Further up, both Brownish-flanked Bush Warbler and Striated Prinia were singing at one of the landslide areas beyond Km 18, unfortunately a little too distantly down the slope for a realistic chance of seeing them.

2016 World Year Ticks: Rusty Laughingthrush, Steere’s Liocichla, Yellow Tit, Taiwan Sibia, Taiwan Yuhina, Black-necklaced Scimitar-Babbler, Morrison’s Fulvetta, White-bellied Green Pigeon, Vivid Niltava (total 775).

A rare clear day in Hanoi, looking north from the edge of the North Wood towards the Red River and airport bridge (photo taken on May 16th).

Site: Red River Island, Hanoi, Vietnam (Google Maps location)
Visits/days: 43 visits covering 42 days, between March 5th and May 16th
Months (days) visited: March (15), April (18), May (10).
Species recorded: 176
General notes: At least 90% of my time was spent in the North Wood and surrounding farmland/grassland at the northern tip of the island, with infrequent visits to other areas. Almost all of my visits were between the hours of 7.00am and 12.00pm, with a typical duration of between 2 and 3 hours. I was usually alone, but sometimes joined by other birders – most often Hung Le and Joy Ghosh.

In the table below, the second column indicates the number of visits on which the bird was recorded (out of 43). The third column is the high count for that species. The fourth column contains notes about a species’ status in the area, or other general comments.

Weekly Report: Red River Island, Hanoi, April 1st-7th

IMG_6081 (2)
Habitat devastation at Red River Island, photo taken on April 4th 2016.

Migration is in full swing in Hanoi, but despite some good bird sightings my overwhelming emotion this week was one of despair. Local people have gradually been turning the wood at the northern end of the Red River Island into an open-cast mine over the last couple of weeks, cutting down trees and transporting the soil out of the wood in carts pulled by buffaloes or motorbikes. Last weekend, the scale of the operation rapidly increased, with about half the forest clearfelled when I returned to the site on Monday morning.

It seems likely that the entire wood – one of the very few remaining areas of natural cover for migrants on the island – will disappear entirely very soon, with the timber and topsoil sold for a quick buck, and the land made available for yet another banana plantation.

This pillage-the-environment-for-fast-cash approach is one of the most depressing aspects of living in Vietnam. The local view seems to be that everything is there for the taking – the birds, the trees, and even the ground itself – with no regard whatsoever for the future.

To top it off, the man with the mist-nets was active in the small area of the wood that still remains.  I was still reeling from seeing the trees lying on the ground, and I told him in no uncertain terms to take down his nets and clear off. He may not have understood my words, but the tone of my voice and body language made my position clear, and he beat a hasty retreat with his equipment. A little later, I bumped into a Vietnamese birder in the wood, who was similarly despondent about the situation. He told me that he had spoken to the trapper earlier in the morning, and asked him to release a male Hainan Blue Flycatcher they had in a cage. The trapper had refused, claiming it was an Oriental Magpie Robin and would fetch a good price in the bird market. It seems they just ignorantly trap anything they can, sell it if possible, and if it dies – the likely destiny for this flycatcher – they don’t care at all.

IMG_6079 (2)
Male Mugimaki Flycatcher in the clearfelled area of the wood at the northern end of the island, April 4th 2016.

Thoroughly despondent after my experiences of the morning, I decided to explore the island to see if I could find any other wooded areas. About two-thirds of the way back to the Long Bien bridge, close to the eastern shore of the island, I found a small wood. Although part of the area has been very recently cleared, a decent patch of trees still remains, with thick ground cover and no paths inside. This should provide a disturbance-free haven for tired migrants, at least for the time being. Hopefully the wood will survive at least until spring migration is over.

Despite all the bad news, I did see some interesting birds this week. Prior to the disastrous clearfelling, I made two visits to the wood on Saturday 2nd April, the first time in the company of Manoli Strecker and Alex Yates. Drizzly weather had brought in plenty of migrants, with the highlight being a Japanese Robin, and a singing Pale-footed Bush-Warbler which responded well to tape and later in the day came in for some very close views as I sat quietly in the wood. Eurasian Wryneck and a briefly-glimpsed Large-tailed Nightjar were both personal firsts for the site, while other excellent sightings on Saturday included a smart male Mugimaki Flycatcher and one or two Blue-and-White Flycatchers.

On Monday, my “new” wood near the eastern shore produced a male Yellow-rumped Flycatcher, a Hainan Blue Flycatcher, a Pale-legged Leaf Warbler, an Ashy Minivet and a rather odd sighting of a Striated Heron perched in a treetop. However, when I returned there on Wednesday with Joy Ghosh, we saw very little – but I am still hopeful that this new location will continue to reward further visits during the spring.

Up to four Yellow-breasted Buntings – including an adult male – have been present in a dead cornfield along the western edge of the island all week, sometimes joined by a small flock of up to nine Little Buntings. Yellow-breasted Bunting is formerly abundant bird that is now officially classified as Endangered by the IUCN, with a precipitous decline in the last twenty years due to hunting of this species in China. Yet another sad story of the state of bird conservation in East Asia.

After Monday’s depressing incidents in the wood, I haven’t yet had the stomach to return to that area, but will probably have to do so next week to see how the destruction is “progressing”.

In total I observed 78 species on Red River Island during the week, and my total site list after just over a month stands at 128 species.

Hitting the 800 mark in Bali, July 8th-14th

Bar-winged Prinia, a Java/Bali endemic, at Uluwatu, July 12th.
Bar-winged Prinia, a Java/Bali endemic, at Uluwatu, July 12th.

Thanks to an unsatisfactory recent Air BnB stay, my wife Jenna and I were compensated with a free $150 voucher, which we decided to spend on a week in a cute little apartment in the back streets of Seminyak. I’m fairly divided in my opinion of the southern Bali beach resorts. On the one hand, there are plenty of excellent restaurants, the beaches are pretty nice, and several interesting birding spots are close at hand. On the other hand, the area is very urbanised and busy, there are pushy touts and vendors and all the ugliness of mass tourism, and traffic can be a nightmare.

To get around, I rented another car from BaliCarFinder, a made-in-Indonesia Toyota people carrier, which was a whole lot of car for $22 per day including delivery to and pickup from my accommodation.

I didn’t spend a huge amount of time birding, but I did take a few mornings to visit the local hotspots of Nusa Dua settling ponds, Serangan Island, and Uluwatu. Leaving Seminyak before it got light avoided the worst of the traffic, and I was home by mid morning to maximise beach time.

Nusa Dua settling ponds is a small area of lakes near the Nusa Dua complex of high-end resorts; the ponds provide a source of irrigation for the gardens and golf courses. It’s an extremely pleasant place to spend a few hours, with a wide track around the perimeter of the lakes and plenty of easy birding. Highlights during my visit included a beautiful Cerulean Kingfisher, Olive-backed Tailorbird (these two species are Java and Bali endemics), a Wandering Whistling-Duck, a few pairs of Sunda Teal, crowd-pleasers such as Blue-tailed Bee-eater and Pink-necked Green Pigeon, and plenty of herons including Striated and Purple.

I was less lucky with the birds at Uluwatu, a scenic clifftop temple on the far south-west edge of Bali. Famed for its world-class surfing, Uluwatu features imposing limestone cliffs which occasionally host White-tailed Tropicbird, while all three species of Frigatebird are also seen here from time to time. However, I saw almost no seabirds apart from a few passing Great Crested Terns. The clifftop scrub was a little more interesting, with easy-to-view Bar-winged Prinia and Olive-backed Tailorbird, two rather common Bali specialities.

Finally, Serangan Island produced quite a few birds for the year list, and left me wishing I had brought my telescope! Serangan is a restricted-access island south of Denpasar, accessible via a causeway. Shortly after the causeway, there’s an entry barrier and booth on the right. Here, visitors must pay 5,000 rupiah and leave some ID at the gate. Apparently cameras are banned here, but my bag wasn’t searched. After checking in, visitors are free to drive the network of dirt roads. It took me several visits to find the best birding area, where there were lots of waders – but unfortunately many of them were too distant to identify with binoculars. Among the ones I did get a closer look at were several Javan Plovers (a recent split from what we used to call Kentish Plover), and a nice group of Far Eastern Curlew, which is a rare bird further west in the region and one of the few waders I missed at Pak Thale/Laem Pak Bia in Thailand earlier in the year.

Other birds seen at Serangan Island included some very showy Cerulean Kingfishers, a lone Glossy Ibis (an East Asia tick for me), a Horsfield’s Bronze Cuckoo, and finally, just as I was about to give up hope, a beautiful male Scarlet-headed Flowerpecker which gave prolonged views on a bare branch – the perfect way to hit 800 bird species for the year.

Seminyak itself produced rather an odd sighting. I was outside our apartment doing my usual early morning workout, when I happened to glimpse what I could have sworn was a Nicobar Pigeon flying past low over the garden. I am sure it has been many years since wild Nicobar Pigeons inhabited these parts, so my first thought was that it was probably an escape – this endangered species is sadly a popular cage bird in the region. In any case, definitely not something I can add to my list ….that one will have to wait until I can visit one of the few remote islands off SE Asia where this bird still occurs in the wild.

Serangan, Nusa Dua and Uluwatu lifers: Bar-winged Prinia, Olive-backed Tailorbird, Cerulean Kingfisher, Wandering Whistling-Duck, Sunda Teal, Javan Plover, Horsfield’s Bronze Cuckoo, Scarlet-headed Flowerpecker.

East Asia tick: Glossy Ibis.

2015 Year Ticks: Far Eastern Curlew, Little Pied Cormorant, Pink-necked Green Pigeon (total 800).

Javan Whistling-Thrush and Yellow-throated Hanging Parrot, Bali highlands, June 24th-26th

Bedugul Botanical Gardens, a really lovely place in the Bali highlands with cool temperatures and lots of birds.

With car hire being exceptionally cheap in Bali (US$18 per day for a small car with unlimited mileage), it made sense to trade in the scooter and take the safer, more comfortable option. I decided to head to the central highlands, an essential port of call for those wanting to see some of Bali’s montane bird species.

I focused my attention on the famous Botanical Gardens at Bedugul, which resemble well-manicured English parkland in places, and contain a wide range of tree and plant species. The climate is cool and pleasant up here at an altitude of around 1,300 meters above sea level, and afternoons are often cloudy or misty with spots of rain. Birding can be very good here, even in the afternoons, with plenty of opportunity to see regional specialities and endemics; species such as Flame-fronted Barbet, Javan Grey-throated White-eye, Blood-breasted Flowerpecker and Short-tailed Starling are very common.

A fairly good map of the gardens is handed out at the gate. You can drive your car into the gardens for an additional fee, which is worth it in the early morning as it enables quicker access to more distant areas of the park. The first road to the left goes through some good habitat, including some denser forest around a gulley that might produce skulkers like Lesser Shortwing, although I didn’t see one. The quieter reaches of this road are good for Javan Whistling-Thrush in the late afternoon, I had several on the grass verges as daylight started to fade, and again in the early morning the next day. The edge of the denser forest held Fulvous-breasted Jungle-Flycatcher, with a Sunda Warbler in a mixed feeding flock that also contained Greater Racket-tailed Drongo and Grey-headed Canary-Flycatcher.

Deeper into the gardens, some trails at the far north east pass through a little-visited area of primary montane forest. Birding was much harder here than in the manicured parklands, but this is where I had my only sightings of Crescent-chested Babbler, Chestnut-backed Scimitar-Babbler, and several juvenile Sunda Cuckoos being tirelessly fed by their “parent” Mountain Leaf-Warblers.

Yellow-throated Hanging Parrot is a speciality of the area, but typically for sightings of this genus, my bird passed quickly overhead, calling loudly, before disappearing far away.

I also paid a short visit to nearby Lake Buyan, where I failed to find my target White-browed Crake, but did have great views of several Freckle-breasted Woodpeckers, a Striated Grassbird, and a Yellow Bittern.

Java Sparrow and Javan Kingfisher, Ubud, June 16th-27th

Views from our accommodation in Ubud - these rice fields held a good range of birds including Javan Kingfisher, Golden-headed Cisticola, and my only Streaked Weaver of the trip.
Views from our accommodation in Ubud – these rice fields held a good range of birds including Javan Kingfisher, Golden-headed Cisticola, and three species of Munia.

Our first priority after a very hectic wedding fortnight, and a long four-flight journey from the south of France, was to relax. Fortunately we had chosen just the right spot for our honeymoon accommodation, a traditional Balinese villa with an infinity pool, overlooking tranquil rice fields, about ten minutes to the south of town.

I was last in Ubud in 2007, and I had fond memories of a quiet little village surrounded by country roads and peaceful rice fields. Not any more – Ubud is now a busy town with an enormous range of accommodations and tourist services, and a burgeoning traffic problem. Modern coffee shops, art galleries and designer boutiques crowd the main streets. The restaurant scene is now eclectic, sophisticated and very healthy, much to the delight of my vegan uber-health-conscious wife. I wondered whether I was going to see any birds here, as initial forays into the countryside on my rented scooter revealed urban sprawl and construction projects stretching for many miles all around.

I needn’t have worried, as during our extended stay here I was able to see almost all of the expected Ubud birds. Top billing goes to the pair of Java Sparrows around our accommodation early one morning. At one time common throughout Bali, this beautiful bird is now very rarely seen in areas where it was once abundant. It is listed as Vulnerable on the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species, and according to birding trip reports is not often seen anywhere these days.

The spectacular Javan Kingfisher is endemic to Java and Bali, and is another speciality of the Ubud area. I had a handful of sightings during my visit, although for such a large and colorful bird it can be elusive and I probably heard it ten times for every one actual sighting.

Munias were everywhere in the rice fields, mainly Scaly-breasted, with smaller numbers of the endemic Javan Munia, and a handful of smart White-headed Munias. Both Zitting and Golden-headed Cisticolas were present in the rice fields, but I had just one sighting of Streaked Weaver.
