Lava - Neora Valley Upper Trail

Decided to do the upper trail at Neora, got a Jeep driver to drop me off at the top though as a lot of the track is around 45 degrees, it's a lot easier going downhill than up! At the top of the hill a big area has now been cleared and is just scrub, this was where I started off with 20 Maroon-backed Accentors, 3 Stripe-throated Yuhinas, 2 Olive-backed Pipits and 6 Rufous-breasted Accentors. I then slowly walked down the trail through the forest adding 20 Chestnut-tailed Minla, 2 Golden-spectacled Warblers, 26 Striated Bulbul, a Mountain Hawk Eagle, 2 White-browed Fulvettas and 2 White-tailed Nuthatch. There seems to have been a bit of an influx of Ashy-throated Warblers the last few days, as I've gone from seeing none a week ago and today there was a flock of 40+ at the end of the trail.
