17th February 2017 Saigon

We caught the 8am Air Asia flight from KL to Ho Chi Minh City where we saw the only Common Kestrel of the trip hunting alongside the runway. We were met by Lusi & Laine and took a taxi to a bakery and then their flat in District 9. It was a hot and humid day. Birding was restricted to taking a short walk along a nearby river.
