 Yellow-rumped Flycatcher

A fairly standard mid-September morning at Suan Rot Fai, with a total of 6 Blue-tailed Bee-eaters and 6 Brown Shrikes spread across the park. A very dense clump of bushes that I have recently discovered held 2 Arctic Warblers and a female-type Yellow-rumped Flycatcher.

I also heard an Asian Brown Flycatcher calling briefly and met a Thai birder who said a Black-backed Pygmy Kingfisher had been seen yesterday - I am seriously gripped!

Edit:  even more gripped by the photo of the Black-backed Kingfisher here
