Animals at Sunrise Villa

This is a follow on post to In the previous post I gave a list of the various birds you can expect to see if you visit Thong Nai Pan. Although I didn't think it was an exhaustive list i am slightly surprised with the following picture:

I am no expert but from my researches I think the pattern and yellow marking make this bird a Chinese Pond Heron. It is an impressive bird and it is an impressive view that the bird is staring at.

It is perched on the roof of Sunrise Villa.

As I have said before: it is the natural environment that is the biggest attraction for Thong Nai Pan. Spotting this bird filled me with excitement, as did the beach when I first saw it. It is these moments that make staying in this area such a joy.
