After getting back from Mae Sot on Thursday, it has become apparent that the temperature in Bangkok is now climbing significantly - tomorrow's expected high is 39 Celcius. Consequently, this morning's session in Suan Rot Fai, with visiting Iraqi birder Mohamad, was pretty hard work and the birds were not really playing ball.  We met a local bird photographer who said that a male Yellow-rumped Flycatcher had been seen yesterday (the first of the northbound passage), and we found a migrant Forest Wagtail, which was the first I have seen at Suan Rot Fai for quite a while, plus a Common Kingfisher heard. There were also a reasonable number of Asian Brown and Taiga Flycatchers - perhaps including some migrants from further south?

I visited the park on Friday afternoon but the only notable spp was the Stork-billed Kingfisher that is  still hanging around.
