Red River Island - 28th April

Hi all,

Short stroll at noon (in the woodland). Good diversity of migrants including :

- 2 Yellow-rumped Flycatchers
- 1 Hainan Blue Flycatcher
- 1 Taiga Flycatcher
- 1 Asian Brown Flycatcher
- 1 Black-naped Monarch
- 2 White-throated Rock Thrushes (male & female)
- some Brown and Eastern-crowned Warblers
- 1 Siberian Blue Robin
- 10-15 Black Drongos + some Spangled & Ashy Drongos along the woodland edge

The 2 White-throated Rock Thrushes perched low inside dense vegetation or in the middle storey, dropping to the floor to catch small invertebrate prey. Inconspicuous but fairly tame.
