In July 2013, Ducks livid Anas gibberifrons was observed around the forest on fire and reportedly arrested by local communities in Ogan Ilir, South Sumatra. Note this is claimed as the first record in South Sumatra. But before this, there had been some records of the results of the survey have not been published on the Ducks continued in South Sumatra. Here, notes on Ducks livid in South Sumatra from 1989 to 2013 are summarized and discussed.

In February 2014, Pergam sea in the amount of 5,000 was observed on the island of Belitung, Sumatera. Information from the local community and additional notes of Lengkuas and Tanjung Kelayang, small islands in the Pacific Islands, suggesting that the Pacific Islands and the surrounding small islands is one of the critical habitat for the species in Indonesia.

Javan Plover Charadrius javanicus is a poorly known Charadrius plover from the Oriental region, which has been recorded from Indonesia and Timor-Leste. Detailed accounts of the identification of Javan Plover are relatively few. At around 15 cm in length, it is about the same size as Kentish Plover C. alexandrinus and also has similar plumage. Here we describe several field observable characteristics which can be used to help identify Javan Plover, and distinguish it from Kentish Plover. We have divided these characters into three categories of relative value: important, supportive and inconclusive. Important characters are an incomplete hindneck collar, lone lateral breast patches, paler leg colour and longer tibia length; supportive characters are blunt and thickbased bill shape, oval head pattern and call; and inconclusive characters are tarsus/bill length ratio (although this character may be of use on birds in the hand or photographs) and length of feet beyond tail (in flight). It is hoped that these characters will help observers to better identify Javan Plovers in the field. © 2013, International Wader Study Group. All rights reserved.

Nine shorebirds species were recorded wintering at three sites on the south-east coast of East Java Province, Indonesia in December 2012. A maximum of 175 shorebirds were counted in the study area. The shorebird community was dominated by Wood Sandpiper followed by Javan Plover. The most widespread species were Javan Plover and Common Sandpiper, which were both recorded at all survey sites. Compilation of historical records and recent shorebird surveys listed 39 shorebird species recorded in the south-east coast area of Java.

The White-bellied Sea-Eagle Haliaeetus leucogaster has been reported to feed on various reptiles, such as aquatic snakes, freshwater turtles and lizards (both terrestrial and aquatic). However, there is no report of it feeding on the Water Monitor Varanus salvator, one of the world's largest lizards. In this paper, we present an observation of a Sea-Eagle attacking a Water Monitor.

Since 2010, intensive surveys on Black-winged Stilt Himantopus himantopus or H. h. himantopus have been done in Sumatra and Java. Although the species has been suspected to breed in northern Sumatra, there are no positive records to support this hypothesis. In this paper, we present the first breeding records of Black-winged Stilt made during fieldwork on May-June 2010 in Sei Tuan wetland habitat, Pantai Labu sub-district, Deli Serdang district, Sumatera Utara Province. This breeding record is not only the first for Sumatra, but also for Indonesia.

Tanjung Putus is a small inland wetland area in South Sumatra Province, Indonesia. The area was surveyed between May 2012 and July 2015 and seven species of shorebird were recorded using the area, including several notable records. The Tanjung Putus wetlands appear to provide an important habitat for shorebirds during the migration period. © 2015, Australasian Wader Studies Group. All right reserved.

Three records of the Pied Harrier Circus melanoleucos in Sumatra, Indonesia, during the last decade (1999-2009) suggest that the recent status of this species in Sumatra is one of a possible regular visitor rather than a vagrant. These records are also a possible southern expansion of the wintering range of this species.

Bangka Island is the second largest island in Sumatra, Indonesia. The island has a lengthy coastline and may provide important habitat for shorebirds during the migration period. There were 18 shorebirds species previously known from Bangka, and a most recent survey added three new species. This paper reviews all shorebird records from Bangka, including the recent discovery of endemic Javan Plover in the island on March-April 2011.

The Australian Pelican Pelecanus conspicillatus has been reported from Bogor (West Java, 107°E) to Ujung Pangkah and Alas Purwo National Park (East Java, 112-114°E). A photograph of a Pelican in Cisarua (Bogor) on 21 May 2011 was probably taken in a zoo and, in the absence of further observations in West Java, it is suggested that that bird had not reached there naturally. Several recent records from East Java suggest that the Pelican is a regular visitor there.
