Peaceful beauty of birdlife at Prek Toal Bird Sanctuary

Prek Toal is one of three biospheres on the Tonlé Sap lake, and this stunning bird sanctuary makes it the most worthwhile and straightforward of the three to visit. It’s an ornithologist’s fantasy, with a significant number of rare breeds gathered in one small area, including the huge lesser and greater adjutant storks, the milky stork and the spot-billed pelican. Even the uninitiated will be impressed, as these birds have a huge wingspan and build enormous nests.During the peak season (December to early February) visitors will find the concentration of birds like something out of a Hitchcock film. As water starts to dry up elsewhere, the birds congregate here. The birds remain beyond February but the sanctuary becomes virtually inaccessible due to low water levels. It is also possible to visit from September, but the bird numbers may be lower. Serious twitchers know that the best time to see birds is early morning or late afternoon.The Prek Toal Bird Sanctuary is such a glorious place for birds that you can observe many species. Common birds like the egret or the pelican, but also the interesting Indian cormorant, painted storks, Oriental Darters and the very rare greater adjutant...The number of greater adjutant in the world is now reduced to a couple of hundred; part of this population live in Prek Toal Bird Sanctuary.
