Signs of migration, or wishful thinking?

A short walk around the Ministry of Public Relations, near home this morning produced the first red-throated Taiga Flycatcher that I have seen this spring, and was quickly followed by a Black-naped Monarch, two leucogenis Ashy Drongos, four or five Black-naped Orioles and single Thick-billed Warbler, Yellow-browed Warbler and Brown Shrike.

Whilst all of these species winter around Bangkok it is interesting to see them all in one small area in a very short period of time (15 minutes) and makes me wonder if some of them at least are already moving north.
