Tart's tick

Despite having a headful of good quality red wine, courtesy of Charles and Nang, I woke up very early and made my way to SRF for the first couple of hours of day light. TAIGA FLYCATCHERS were, it is no exaggeration to say, abundant, and I even managed to get a world tick in the form of SPOTTED OWLET - a resident in the park, and something I've glimpsed a few times, but today I had crippling views...and a camera on the wrong setting! I also managed to summon up a patch tick in the shape of an ASHY DRONGO (of the migrant race leucogenis), which brings my patch list to 63.
