Giant Ibis at Yok Don!

Hi guys,

I saw a Giant Ibis at Yok Don at a pool on 27th May. This was the first record for Vietnam since the last record, which was made by Jonathan Eames in 2003, which was the first record since the one before, which was in 1931.

Yok Don is great, I also saw all of Vietnam's parrotifauna, Black-headed Woodpecker, White-rumped Falcons and a whole bag of other stuff.

I also made a short trip to Mang Den where I failed to get up the hill to find Golden-winged Laughingthrush. It was nice to see the Chestnut-eared Laughingthrushes again after finding them at this site in May 2010 last year.
