As evident above, the Marsh Harrier arrives by September and is usually gone by April. Common Kestrel and Ashy Drongo come later in October and stay on till April. The Golden Oriole – an intra-subcontinental migrant – has observations spread over nearly the entire year. These summaries have been made possible because of your contributions!
