Thick-billed Warblers

I took today off work and spent a nice, relaxed four hours at Suan Rot Fai in the morning. Birding was enjoyable but unspectacular, the best being a Pale-legged Leaf Warbler in The Ramble and two Thick-billed Warblers (in short supply on the patch this winter).

Other goodies included about 10 Yellow-browed Warblers, the wintering Dusky Warbler, two or three Asian Brown Flycatchers four Brown Shrikes and at least seven Taiga Flycatchers.

Of the photos below, all are taken on the Nikon V1 with 300mm f4 af-s lens.  The two thick-billed warbler shots have been cropped but have had no other editing. The other images have also been cropped and have had some minor edits.

Please could I ask permission to use your Thick-billed Warbler photo on my website

I found a first for the country on 24 February but failed to get any pictures and would like to use your photo on my post
