Not much time for birding until I went to pick up the group from Taipei airport and managed to squeeze in a quick hour a few kilometres along the coast before they arrived. In a tidal creek were lots of summer-plumaged Red-necked Stints and Lesser Sandplovers and a few Kentish Plovers, but i'm guessing the male Merlin that rocketed by is quite a good bird in Taiwan? Some partially flooded rice fields just inland held a male Greater Painted Snipe, a few introduced Sacred Ibis and a Crested Bunting was perched on a bush. And then I met my group and we headed down to Fongyuan and a great posh hotel for the night, after eating in the night market and visiting a temple. No more culture please!!!!
