Two-barred Crossbill

Tom: Superb record. Congratulations. I agree with Terry that they are probably overlooked as they sometimes mix with other Crossbills but they are no doubt generally very scarce.

Duck

Askar. The bill should be blue for Wigeon and looks too big for me and with that distiinct sloping bridge to the upper mandible looks more Scoter to me.

Unknown duck ?

Askar: Very tricky bird indeed, however I think it maybe a female Velvet Scoter. I can't think what else sports a white wingbar similar to the bird you show. It also apparently has a Scoter beak.

Gretchen: Thanks but this is more the atypical darker version of L-T Shrike with conrasting darker head and wing coverts and dark grey beak. I have seen quite a few that look like the Taiwan bird.
