Suan Rot Fai: 26 April 2015


Suan Rot Fai (Wachira Benjathat Park) is probably the only good birding site in Bangkok accessible by public transportation. Following the news of a female Japanese Thrush, a rare migrant in Thailand, by David Gandy on Saturday, I made a brief visit to the park on Sunday morning.

Only within 10 minutes after entering the park, I came across a male Yellow-rumped Flycatcher near the area where Thailand’s first Hartert’s Leaf Warbler was found. This colourful bird had long been one of my bogey birds until the spell broke some years ago and now I see it every once in a while. A walk around the park didn’t produce anything much afterwards.
