Looking up

Did an early moring walk around the Ministry of Public Relations again this morning.  Passerine migrants included one Asian Brown Flycatcher, one Yellow-browed Warbler and another poorly seen phyllosc sp. (probably Arctic).  I also picked up two Peregrines sparring overhead and calling loudly - they looked fantastic in the early morning sun.

Before starting work a colleague and I went up to our office roof top to look for any evience of vizmig (hoping for some raptor action. We picked up one Crow-billed Drongo, small numbers of Barn Swallows, one or two distant raptors (probably accipiter spp.) and had a flock of 20 Great Cormorants heading due south (GC is a winter visitor to Thailand).
