Kampong Thom to Seima Protected Forest
A quick check of the marsh this morning produced all the usual goodies including Cinnamon and Yellow Bitterns, 3 Bengal Floricans, Pied Harrier, Streaked Weaver and a confiding Lanceolated Warbler. We then left on the long drive to Seima Protected Forest where we arrived by late afternoon and just had enough time to bird along the road. Fortunately we had a couple views of Red-vented Barbet, as well as Vernal Hanging-parrot, a pair of Golden-crested Mynas and a cracking pair of Collared Falconets. We finished the day with Great Eared-Nightjar flying along the road straight towards us before returning to the lodge.
