More from Na Hin, Laos

Trying to edit and post when time allows - I think these are the last that are worth putting up for now...

Sooty Babblers: a small flock (circa 8 birds) seen on two dates on the karst. This species was "lost" for more than 70 years, being described from central Laos in 1920, and then not seen again until 1994 (in Vietnam, then subsequently in Laos). It is now listed as near-threatened.

The coppersmiths in central Laos look somewhat different from the ones in my garden!
