Drongo Cuckoo

Another very productive morning at Suan Rot Fai, with quality rather than quantity the name of the game (as is often the case here with  spring migration).  The undoubted highlights today were two patch ticks in the form of a very obliging Fork-tailed Drongo Cuckoo in the "Canal Zone", and a female Swinhoe's Minivet with a flock of c.10 Ashy Minivets. In addition to these I found a small party of Eye-browed Thrushes (two seen, and perhaps two more heard) in trees by Lotus Lake and a male Yellow-rumped Flycatcher in the Ramble.
