The Pictures of Daurian Grey

Excellent morning's birding at Suan Rot Fai from 7-10am, with significant numbers of migrants seen, best of all being a flock of up to 40 DAURIAN STARLINGS feeding in a fruiting tree in the company of the common resident starling/myna species.

There was also a strong showing from other migrants, including 4 or 5 YELLOW-RUMPED FLYCATCHERS (including two adult males), 4 BROWN SHRIKES, one EASTERN CROWNED WARBLER, one ARCTIC WARBLER and one FOREST WAGTAIL.

 Nice bum!

...and the less sexy side.

A couple of more routine species also gave themselves up for the camera today...
