In a rare sighting in Bumdeling Wildlife Sanctuary, a Chinese Pond Heron (Ardeola bacchus) was spotted near Singye Dzong at a record altitude of 3600 m in Bhutan.

The Chinese Pond Heron is an East Asian lowland freshwater bird. It is typically 47 cm (19 in) long bird with white wings, a yellow bill with a black tip, yellow eyes and legs.

Its overall colour is red, blue and white during breeding season, and greyish-brown and flecked with white at other times.
