A Year in Bangkok – Sunbirds.

Well, I’ve got back to Bangkok and, of course, to too much work including having to replace four teachers right at the end of the school year!

But, joy of joys, a pair of olive-backed sunbirds are now regular visitors to the tiny patch of gravel (with a few plants) that we grandly call our garden.

They come every day and don’t seem to be at all bothered by us watching them from just a couple of feet away. I didn’t see any of these when I was living in the city although a lost, tired and completely shagged out pied kingfisher once landed on my balcony for a rest.

After living in the city centre for so long, it’s magical hearing birdsong every morning!
