Purple-backed Starlings in Hanoi

A flock of 30-40 Purple-backed Starlings stopped to feed in a fruiting fig tree along the edge of Truc Bach lake this morning (31/08/10). After half an hour or so they headed off to the botanical gardens (as did I, where there was a 1st year male Yellow-rumped Fly). I first saw them on the 29th, whizzing past the window of my flat, but did not identify them until today.
