On our way there we had added Common Redshank to the Thailand wader list, but it was not until we were leaving the site that we came across another new wader. We found three snipe hunkered down beside some experimental reed patches and when they flew they revealed themselves to be Pin-tailed Snipe.

Once we were brave enough to venture forth again we returned to the King's Project. Here we soon added Common Snipe, this time not skulking in the long grass like the Pin-tailed Snipes earlier, but wandering around in the open on one of the muddy pools.
