Simon Mahood and Nicolas Wilkinson

An early morning trip in the pouring rain to the Red River Island proved worth the effort.
We saw:

Quail sp. 1
Yellow-legged Buttonquail 1
Black Bittern 1
Black-winged Stilt 4
Green Sandpiper 10+
Wood Sandpiper 20+
Snipe spp. 150+ (Some Common, some probable Pintail)
Jack Snipe 2 (apparently the first record for East Tonkin)
Black-winged Kite 1
Burmese Shrike 1
Black-collared Starling 1 (escape)

Also 1 Dollarbird over Hanoi late the next day.
