Rain in the middle of the dry season?!

Dawn this morning saw a couple of very heavy, unseasonal rain showers that disrupted my birding at Suan Rot Fai. When the rain eventually stopped I managed to find a Stork-billed Kingfisher (presumed to be the bird first seen in December), a Little Cormorant (my third or fourth record on the patch), a Radde's Warbler plus the Dusky Warbler that has been resident in the Ramble for the last month.

Brown Shrikes seemed to be present in higher numbers than I had seen late last year (four individuals seen this morning) whilst about five each of Yellow-browed Warbler, Taiga and Asian Brown Flycatchers were present.

No sign of the Claudia's Leaf Warbler, and the possible mega Cyornis seems to be history.

Radde's, shot with the Nikon V1 with 300mm f4 (equivalent 810mm, f4)
