Ferruginous Flycatcher in Lenin Park!

This morning I met Sebastian in Lenin Park, when I arrived he was already photographing a Ferruginous Flycatcher - a second record for East Tonkin! The bird was hanging out behind the toilets. Photos and video will follow...watch this space!

Also about were an Orange-headed Thrush, Hill Blue Flycatcher, Asian Stubtail, Dusky Warbler and Siberian Blue Robin.


Also, in the Botanical Gardens at lunch were 3 Orange-headed Thrushes, lucionensis Brown Shrike, 4 Yellow-browed Warblers, 1 Pale-legged Warbler and plenty of Spangled Drongos.


P.S. Ferruginous Flycatcher seems to have found its favorite spot - until 12.30 pm always behind the toilets!
Other birds of note that add up to the list were at least 1 Blue Whistling Thrush and 1 Grey-headed Canary-Flycatcher (near the 'starling tree').
