Was there a week ago and got much the same list apart from the Goldcrest. One of my favourite places to go birding currently.

i saw Nuthatches only in internet not live... :)

You've got some stunning Nuthatches in India. Chestnut-bellied north of the peninsula, Kashmir in the far north, White-tailed along the Nepal border, the gorgeous White-cheeked in Kashmir and the superb Velvet-fronted around the margin and across the base of the peninsula. We, in the UK, have to make do with one.
