That broad white area is missing on lilfordi, which has a completely black mantle. The white bars on the wings are narrower and the back is not white at all, but black with ladder-like white...

It looks superficially like Dark-sided but it's not right structurally - the bill and head are too large and the wings are nowhere near long enough. How about Grey-streaked?

I initially thought it was maybe Pallid (somewhat rare in BD), but then someone said it looks like it could be pied that's molting and lost it's P9.

That may be the case, as the bird seems to have a...

The call of Red-throated is quite distinctive once you hear it - a rather drawn-out, sharp call which gets your attention.

I regularly see Buzzards with foxy-red underwing-coverts around my Bulgarian home. One bird is a dark morph with a dark terminal band. They're local residents, unlike the Steppe individuals coming...

1st looks like Whiskered - the wings and tail are longer than the tail, not the other way round, fairly stout bill and bold stripe through the eye.

2nd also short-tailed but long thin bill and...

I think MSE probably is separable with care, and as Andy says, it's found exclusively at higher altitudes.

There are emarginations visible, yes. Nothing much on P5 as far as I can see but BRW doesn't always have an emarginated P5 as per Grahame. Is it my imagination, or can we see a tiny P1 sticking out...

We seem to be overlooking the fact that the photo was taken in Perak, which is on the mainland, not in Borneo (MSE is a Bornean endemic). MSE has a limited distribution even in Sabah and Sarawak and...

I'm not really familiar with Two-barred Warbler, so perhaps shouldn't have commented. Looking again, your bird is too long-winged for TBW and its supercilium is too narrow, especially above the eye....

I think I would consider Two-barred too - the extent of the greater covert wingbar is hidden by overgrown feathers.

Was this in the Healing Garden? There's been a bird there this morning with a lot of yellow on the bill (rather like this one), which has been confusing me.

If it's 1st-winter isabellinus, it's a well-marked one - the eyestripe is thick and black with the beginnings of black on the lores too and it's quite well-barred. On a second look, the buff tones on...
