Japanese breakfast

My early morning walk in the grounds of the Ministry of Public Relations produced no migrant warblers/flycatchers, but I was stunned to see a female Japanese Sparrowhawk take a Tree Sparrow right in front of me!  It perched up, allowing me to get point blank views whilst she devoured her kill. Of course this happens when the camera is at home.

There are increasing numbers of Japanese Sprawks heading south at the moment, with 224 seen yesterday from the watchpoint of Khao Dinsor, near Chumphon.

On the way back through the grounds of the MPR I had a Grey Wagtail pass over - the first of the winter, and I picked up Brown Shrike near home.
