A visit to Suan Rot Fai produced a couple of notable birds in the form of an Intermediate Egret
(not common in the centre of the city) and a party of approximately 10 Ashy Minivets
(a species I strongly associate with passage migration). There also seemed to be quite a number of Brown Shrikes
around, with eight individuals seen, perhaps some migrants amongst them?
Last weekend's Black-winged Cuckoo-shrike
was still present, and gave itself up for the camera. Everything else was as to be expected, including Chinese and Javan Pond Herons
, a group of 20 Cattle Egrets
with several birds attaining breeding plumage, and a couple of Little Egrets
. Passerines included at least five Taiga Flycatchers
(all in heavy moult) and three Asian Brown Flycatchers
, whilst a single Black-naped Monarch
and the two Radde's Warblers
were still present in the Secret Garden.
