Thailand Photos... Part 3 (the UK Megas...)

One of the highlights of my Thailand birding trip was seeing a range of passerines that would make any UK/WP birder salivate at the lips (not all necessary the best looking of birds but  high value in the rarity stakes). These included birds such as Siberian Blue Robin, Siberian Rubythroat, Pallas's Grasshopper, Lanceolated, Thick-billed, Arctic, Eastern Crowned, Pale-legged Leaf, and Two-barred Greenish Warblers, Red-flanked Bluetail, Brown Shrike, Asian Brown and Taiga Flycatchers, Blue Rock Thrush, Eyebrowed Thrush, Daurian Redstart, Siberian and Stejneger's Stonechats, and Amur and Eastern Yellow Wagtails.

Along with the above there was some more regular passerine fare such as Richard's and Olive-backed Pipits, Little Bunting, Pallas's, Yellow-browed, Hume's, Dusky, Radde's and Greenish Warblers, Common Rosefinch, Bluethroat, Hoopoe, and Wryneck etc...

By now you'll be familiar with my photography prowess and it will come as no surprise that I didn't manage decent pics of most/any of the above (often in low light), though I did get a few record shots (below in no particular order)...
