The good news was there had clearly been an arrival with all that overnight and early morning rain. Phylloscs were even more common and I saw a lot more Eastern Crowned. Whether they were really new in or I was merely connecting with more I can't be certain but there were a also a couple of stubbornly silent Arctic-complex warblers I hadn't seen yesterday and there were most definitely far more Asian Brown Flycatchers. A small group of Chestnut-flanked White-eyes were discovered in the harbour during the day. As an aside, the lack of definite Japanese Leaf Warblers interesting as I saw and heard several in a coastal park the following day.
As I said Asian Brown Flycatchers were far more common, I also added Grey-streaked and Japanese Paradise to my trip list, Blue and White were up in numbers but I saw just the one Mugimaki. Possibly the same bird as yesterday.

That Chestnut Bunting I missed was frustrating but other buntings were fairly easy to find, though there was just a single late Rustic that I saw.
