A few winter thrushes in at last

The cooler weather of late has evidently resulted in a few more winter visitors arriving on Cheung Chau - after it had been very quiet. (These birds likely moving south as places they had been staying in China became cold, maybe with snow, making it harder to find food.)

On 18 January, had relatively successful (bird-wise) walk around Fa Peng area, with handsome male Grey Thrush, Grey-headed Flycatcher and Black-naped Monarch.

Yesterday, also Fa Peng area, saw single Grey and Grey-backed thrushes; heard a few more thrushes (they are shy, fond of hiding in dense cover, so more easily heard than seen).
