Abstract: First paragraph: The Red-legged Crake Rallina fasciata is a little-known rallid, listed as Least Concern by BirdLife International (2015), with a range extending across most of South-East Asia (Robson 2008, Taylor 2015). However, the species has been rarely recorded, with the exception of a few locations in Singapore and Thailand (Li 2009, Wong 2011, Pierce et al. 2013), partly because of its skulking nature; it is seldom flushed or observed, and very rarely encountered as camera-trap by-catch during wildlife surveys, indicating that it may indeed be genuinely scarce. This note is a compilation of the only three confirmed Redlegged Crake records from Cambodia. Two are new records, whilst the third has been previously reported (Goes 2013) but is presented here with documentary evidence. These records confirm the species’s presence in three protected areas in widely separated parts of the country, and offer limited but important information on its ecology and likely status.
