28/09/06 : Further migrants at Mae Hia included 2 Taiga Flycatchers and a small flock of 4 Black Bazas on the 25th with 3 Eurasian Wrynecks present on the 26th. A non-migrant, but a bird which doesn't seem to be recorded very often, was an Oriental Turtle Dove on the 27th.

The above sightings from Mae Hia were taken from Tony Ball's Birdwatcher's Diary blog with his kind permission.

27/09/06 : Migrants at Thai Muang paddies were 21 Pintail Snipe, 1 Grey-headed Lapwing and 4 Black Bitterns, one of which was seen feeding 2 fledged young. Is this the first confirmation of this species breeding in the south? - Stijn De Win.

One migrant of particular interest was a "grey-backed" Long-tailed Shrike of the nominate subspecies schach.

Also at Mae Hia 2 Northern Hobbies turned up on the 21st September and were still there on the 23rd along with an Oriental Cuckoo in the company of a single Banded Bay Cuckoo. A single immature Black-crowned Night Heron was also interesting for northern birders.
