As I arrived at work late morning, having just dropped Amalee off at the airport, I was greeted with the incongruous sight of one of the car park attendants wondering around with this Blue-winged Pitta in his hand!
It had presumably either hit a window or was simply exhausted, so I extracted it from the said attendant and took it into my office to show a few of my colleagues before taking it across the road to a small woodlot in the grounds of the adjacent hospital. It few off strongly, hopefully to continue it's northward migration.
