Arrived back in Thailand a few days ago, weather grim, grey skies, heavy rain, warm and humid and the usual talk of floods. First couple of days spent in Bangkok, only birding done was out of the hotel window, where eye level views of House Swifts and usual common species such as Ashy Woodswallow, Tree Sparrow, Peaceful Dove and Red-collared Dove.

Now back at Suphanburi where all birding from the house, where a Brown Shrike in the garden, flock of 30 Whiskered Terns overhead and a few Oriental Pratincoles.

Yesterday in heavy rain had a drive around the edges of the local patch, which seems largely intact apart from a new school in one corner and yet more scrub cleared. Hopefully weather permitting will get out and about over the next few mornings but looking at water levels getting around the patch will be tricky.
