Nandi Hills

All day around the Nandi Hills just north of Bangalore, mainly for Yellow-throated Bulbul.
The day started in fine style with a Red-necked Falcon being mobbed by Jungle Crows at the base of the hills. The main target was got by curve 36 on the way down from the top, unfortunately I didn't manage any photos as the road was now full of tuk-tuks, taxis and buses, flushing everything in sight. Despite all the disturbance at this site, managed to see the following - 6 Brown-headed Barbets, 1 Alpine Swift, 2 Black-shouldered Kites, 1 Red-necked Falcon, 1 Short-toed Eagle, 2 White-bellied Drongo, 2 Paradise Flycatchers, 2 Orange-headed Thrush, 2 Blue-capped Rock Thrush, 1 Red-breasted Flycatcher, 2 Yellow-throated Bulbul, 10 Large-billed Leaf Warbler, 6 Rufous Babbler, 1 Grey Wagtail, 4 Olive-backed Pipits and a Puff-throated Babbler.
