Monday to Wednesday has been very busy at Malee's and I was needed to help, I did manage to squeeze in a couple of short walks to the temple. Best bird by far was a Blue Pitta which hopped cross the temple steps between the limestone outcrops yesterday morning. Also new was a Large Hawk Cuckoo and two Green Magpies. Usual species present included Orange-breasted Trogon, 2 Sultan Tit, 25 Striated Yuhina, Violet Cuckoo and 2 Blue-bearded Bee-eater. Tuesday a Grey-headed Parakeet flew over the garden and on both Monday and Tuesday, the Spot-bellied Eagle Owl flew over the garden just before dusk, a Large-tailed Nightjar was also heard yesterday evening.
