Parrotbill - Hangzhou, China, Jan 08

Hi All,

Please could someone help me ID this parrotbill? I suspect it's Vinous-throated, but could it be Ashy-throated?

Seen in a group of 7-10 birds, very active in bushes and shrubs in park land near the West Lake, Hangzhou in late January. Birds were emitting constant high pitched twittering, if this helps!

Sorry for the poor image quality. Light was very poor and couldn't get a fast shutter speed to freeze movement.

Many thanks in advance for any help.
