Verdi(ter)'s requiem

The grounds of the Ministry of Public Relations this morning produced brief views of a Verditer Flycatcher, a scarce winter visitor to Bangkok and indeed only my second confirmed record in the city (in 2011 I found a male in Suan Rot Fai, and last year  I glimpsed one "possible" there).

The other highlights this morning were an adult Peregrine that flew past giving fabulous views and a Spangled Drongo. Otherwise migrants were a bit thin on the ground with 1-2 Brown Shrikes, 2 Asian Brown Flycatchers, 2 Yellow-browed Warblers and a single Taiga Flycatcher.
