Very outstanding record - 2 Blue-bearded Bee-eaters were first heard and then seen along the stream that flows into Ho Son. Possibly a first for Tam Dao!
As the days (and nights!) are getting much cooler here in Tam Dao, a bit of altitudinal migration seems to start.
This morning a Grey Treepie was seen, in a mixed flock of Scarlet Minivets, Ashy Drongos and a few Phylloscs. Later on 2 more treepies were heard but not confidently identified.
Slaty-backed Forktail now inhabits the lower stretches of the small stream near NP head quarters (again, the one that ends up in Ho Son).
A lone Forest Wagtail was a late migrant. One Large Hawk-cuckoo showed up as well.
Bar-backed Partridge and the smaller owls calling actively.
