Warbler ? - Hangzhou, China, Jan 08

Dear All,

Totally stuck with this one. I've trawled through the OBC site and don't seem to be getting anywhere.

Very distinctive large downcurved bill. Image 1 is by far the best, the rest are very poor quality and are attached just in case they provide some useful additional markings. Pics taken in pouring rain on a very dull afternoon. Focussing was a real challenge on such a nimble mover!

Once again, I'd be very grateful of some help with ID.

Thanks in advance
Kev

I think it's an Aethopyga sunbird

seems to have a shortish bill and some white in the tail so possibly a Fork-tailed I think distribution is ok too
