My Consolation Price For My Kota Bahru Birding Adventure

Finally on the fifth day of bird adventure at Kota Bahru, I managed to get a consolation price, a lifer also, by spotted this Oriental Reed Warbler at a open grass land on the way to the town of Bachok on the D5 trunk road.
I almost miss ID it, initially I thought it was a Paddy-field Pippit but after a closer look I realized that it should be other species.

Hi madibirder,

I did go there but no luck on the Indian Roller.

You are lucky to catch it taking a breather! Nice record of a moving bird.
