White-winged Terns at Chreav 11th September

Together with Ashish John and Sophoan I birded the flooded fields southeast of Siem Reap towards the lake . Two White-winged Tern were the highlight, an adult and a juvenile feeding with a small flock of about 12 Whiskered Tern. Unfortunately they were pretty distant so the photo is a shocker, and only of the adult!

A brief view of two Grey-headed Lapwing heading north some distance away from me was also a source of mild frustration, which seems to be the associated feeling with birding at this location. As another example we again saw a group of Long-toed Stints, but were unable to get within hundreds of metres apart from flight views.Good birding though, with a female Greater Painted Snipe seen again here and Green and Common Sandpiper amongst still good numbers of Wood Sandpiper.
