Ashy Minivets

an overdue patch tick!

 SRF 0610-0940 hrs. The highlight this morning was a flock of c.10 Ashy Minivets, my first patch tick of 2012. They were feeding in a flowering Rain Tree in the company of a single Black-winged Cuckoo-shrike, an Ashy Drongo and a couple of Black-naped Orioles. Close to this area I had a couple of Yellow-rumped Flycatchers, including a cracking male.

Other migrants this morning included three Asian Brown Flys, two Taiga Flys,  two Brown Shrikes and one Thick-billed Warbler.
