New wintering site discovered in Malaysia

A contact from Malaysia, Mr TH Ang, had sighted 3 Nordmann's Greenshanks near Muar in November 2007. This is a migratory bird roosting site not previously surveyed by birdwatchers. (Muar is a coastal town in Peninsular Malaysia situated between Kuala Lumpur and Singapore.)

Thanks to the extensive coverage of local birdwatchers, this elusive wader is gradually unfolded in Malaysia.

Hi there,

We would like to use one or two photos from this blog in a forthcoming book I am currently working on (especially after young and juvenile birds), but I am unable to find your email address here, or any other way of contacting you. Could you drop me a line on jmartin AT to discuss?

Many thanks
