Touchdown in Thailand - 23rd September

And so to the first day of a long and colourful innings in South-east Asia (which continues as I write, with a month still to go before we move on to India). We spent a couple of days at our friends Neil and Eunice's place in the suburbs of Bangkok, the first of which being suitably wet and therefore birding was confined to their small, shady garden. Still, of about eight species, six were lifers, which isn't such a bad strike rate all things considered.....

Streak-eared Bulbul

We stayed in Bangkok for almost a week, and there was plenty of quality birding to be had; more to follow anon.
