These are splits, Tim? Simla leaf was ssp simlaensis and Sichaun Leaf was ssp chloronotus? Are there further splits (see http://www.springerlink.com/content/xbld742emhutkw9r/)

Harry, it sez 'ere simlaensis and chloronotus have a very different call, 'uist' (Kevin Baker's Helm guide). But my understanding is that only nominate proregulus has vagrancy potential to the UK and Ireland. Our OBC members can enlighten further - I've just been reading up having seen my first yesterday.
