Commonly found in many parts of Southeast Asia,breeding mainly in China.
The breeding plumage is very striking and much more colourful than immature and non-breeding birds. Hong Kong, where
these shots were taken, is near the southern limit of the breeding range, but birds migrate further south. A vagrant
has been accepted in the UK, personally I cannot understand it as it was a near-adult.
