Grahame,
Are you saying a borealis never moults in December? You can see the contour feathers breaking up on the throat and upper breast, next to what you describe as a olive-brown breast suffusion....

Hi all,

Hi all,

Hi all,
Andy, there are specific descriptions of Paddyfield with a short barely decurved hind-claw, now. These are proportionally not much longer than those of a house sparrow. Alok's bird has a...

Hi all,
Werzik, see why you might think it is Tawny.
The hind-claw length however is classic for Paddyfield, with some natural variation excepted. I do not think the upper-parts areas are...

Pipit id.

Hi all,
this is interesting. I believe this to be a richard's pipit but it shows many aspects of paddyfield pipit ! Alok has mentioned the hind-claw but it is difficult to assess it's length relative...

Hi all,
indeed, agree with Smiths and Werzik, on LSW id. but perhaps some confusion with the name little rush warbler, a bradypterus?

Pipit id.

Hi all,
the tail is not fully grown yet, so it looks proportionally short even for Paddyfield.
The point was made about the hind-claw. Enclose a Richard Pipit's hind-claw, longer than hind-toe,...

Hi all,
think this is the more widespread, glossy swiftlet. This is the bird that probably embraces at least, Northern Sumatra, The Peninsula and most of Borneo. The problem is, that this more ...

Hi all,
a completely colourless chiffchaff is of interest. Suspect it would need a sepia crown and warmer buff ear coverts to be Mountain Chiffchaff. Looking at the wing-point and tail, the spiky...
