House caller

It's a very rainy morning here in Bangkok. Not one of our typical wet season days when it gets to late afternoon, the wind picks up and we have a tropical downpour for an hour. No, today is one of those few days each year when I feel like I live back in England - continuous, soaking rain and low cloud. These days usually happen in September and October (the end of the wet season) and so this weather can be good at forcing down diurnal migrants. As such I was pleased but not too surprised to hear this Blue-tailed Bee-eater calling outside our bedroom window whilst I was eating my breakfast. The bird moved between the rooftops making hunting sallies and then during a brief hiatus in the rain headed on its way south.
