Sri Nakhon Khuean Khan Park is more-or-less in Bangkok (in the adjacent Samut Prakan province), and I don't think Little Spiderhunter has been recorded in either province.

I must've been...

Cheers, Andy.

Thanks to all for the help. I originally didn't think Radde's because of the lack of colour on the undertail coverts, but I guess I should've also been looking at other features as well.

Thanks also...

Thanks again, Grahame!

I guess among other things, the barring on the underside seen on the 2nd pic point towards Jerdon's, not to mention the different wing shape.
