Red Avadavat

Red Avadavat
Taken at 8am, you can hear the Thai National anthem
being played at the adjacent prison!

A quick stroll around the patch this morning revealed little new, the flock of eleven Red Avadavat were still present and showing well. Wader numbers remained at similar levels to yesterday, the only change being the reappearance of six Grey-headed Lapwing. More raptors than I have seen for a little while were present, with single Pied and Eastern Marsh Harrier, two Black-shouldered Kites and a Kestrel. Several winter visitors were noted singing including Dusky Warbler, Eastern Stonechat and several Brown Shrikes. Five Taiga Flycatchers were seen, including one with a red throat. A Bhraminy Kite was over the house when I returned and the local Plaintive Cuckoo's and Asian Koels were singing well.
