More shots of Thrushes

Hi all,

Below some photos taken at the Botanical Gardens last Saturday. There has been a big drop of in the number of migrants passing through the park, with some Japanese Thrushes, 1 Blue Whistling Thrush, 1 Taiga Flycatcher, some Yellow-browed Warblers...
It looks like it might be a "Thrushy" winter !  We live in hope.....

  1. That ficedula is interesting - seems to show a very pale bill-base, buff covert spots. Could we get a close-up of the uppertail-coverts? I would struggle to discount Red-breasted on this photo, which would be interesting...


  2. @James: Can you mail me, I will send you some more photos for a clearly view of that Taiga :)
