Koh Ker 15th September 2012

Virtually a full house of SVC guides took part in this training trip to Koh Ker, with excellent raptoring including an immature Changeable Hawk Eagle and an adult Oriental Honey-buzzard (on route) and excellent views of White-rumped Falcon.

Views of Collared Falconet were unexpectedly forced into the exceptional when a male we were watching flew straight into a fishing net that was drying outside a house. We quickly extracted the surprisingly placid miniature killing machine and released him to fly right back onto his previous perch, hopefully having learnt a lesson.
Some migrants included Asian Brown Flycatcher and 2 Arctic Warblers, but I'm not sure how far the incei Asian Paradise Flycatcher had travelled, nor this Hainan Blue Flycatcher.
