Working on the Thai-Myanmar border

I'm in Mae Sot for a few days this week, so spent an hour after work checking out my "local patch" here, behind the airport.

2CY Black-winged Kite

Highlights included this Black-winged Kite, which from the neatly white-tipped greater coverts I assume is a 2CY bird (?), and a less co-operative male Pied HarrierPied Bush Chats were much in evidence, with several males holding territory, whilst there were also a couple of Siberian Stonechats and a Zitting Cisticola active just before dusk.  I also heard  Siberian Rubythroat calling off in the distance, but it was too far away to warrant seeking out.
