Beginning to feel better, yesterday morning I wandered up to the temple, I spent around an hour watching a fruiting tree by the temple gates, though only a relatively small tree a huge number and variety of birds were noted feeding in it, most giving incredibly close views. Four species of barbets were noted with at least 6 Blue-eared, 3 Blue-throated, 2 Coppersmith and a brief Linneated. It was hard to work out how many Asian Fairy Bluebirds were using the tree but at one point 3 males and 2 females were present, with others calling from nearby trees. Large numbers of bulbuls were always present including Grey-eyed, Puff-throated and Black-headed. Other species also noted in the tree included Yellow-vented and Thick-billed Flowerpecker, a fast moving flock of 25 Striated Yuhina and a Verditer Flycatcher.
Other birds around the temple car park included 2 Blue-bearded Bee-eater, Violet Cuckoo, 2 Buff-breasted Babbler and 20 Brown-checked Fulvetta.
Spent this morning catching up on a few jobs, but did record two Crested Serpant Eagle displaying over the garden and at least two Violet Cuckoo. Later afternoon I took a walk along the checkpoint road it was fairly slow birding, but a pair of Northern White-crowned Forktail were present on the stream, a male Grey Bushchat was present along the road and has now been present for nearly two months and at around 5pm three Oriental Pied Hornbill flew towards the temple.
