Welcome back, guys, we've missed you!

Excellent start to the autumn's migration at Hanoi (in 3 different small patches) with 4-5 Yellow-rumped Flys (including 1 male), 1 Phyllos non ID, 2 Asian Paradise Flys, 4 Forest Wagtails (together), 1 Tiger Shrike juv, 1 Asian Brown Fly, 1 Hainan Blue Fly.
After 3 months admiring Red-wiskered Bulbuls and Sparrows, we are all happy!

Asian Paradise Flycatcher (Gia Lam, 26th August). The blackish throat contrasting with the grey breast and belly indicates that this is the migrant race, incei.
