Black Bittern

Did Suan Rot Fai before work and managed quite a nice haul.  Pride of place must go to a juvenile Black Bittern which was flying around Lilly Lake and perching in adjacent trees. I also picked up a White Wagtail flying over and calling - both of these species are new for the patch.

Remarkably, a new Ferruginous Flycatcher was present in the same stand of trees where I had seen one just two weeks ago (the photos below show it is much more heavily worn than the previous bird), whilst perhaps the strangest encounter of the morning was a Brown Shrike in sub-song! Other notables included single Pale-legged Leaf and Dusky Warblers in the Ramble, an adult Night Heron, at least four Cattle Egrets on the deck, two Great White Egrets overhead, and at least five Ashy Drongos.
