There were no shops once we were up at Eaglenest, so stopped at a small town for essential luxuries to last our five night stay. These included chocolate, crisps, nuts, bottled water and three crates of beer. I should point out that this list is not necessarily given in priority order!

Within minutes, first of all Paul and then Rachael had ticked off the recently discovered and arguably the most wanted bird of the trip - Bugun liocichla. Minutes later Mandy had it but I dipped! I tried to play it cool but this was the first of several birds I failed to see that the others got. Never mind! A bit further down the path and it happened again, everyone getting on scaly-breasted wren babbler. I resolved not to lag behind and keep closer to Abid.
By the end of the afternoon we had see a host of new birds including greater-rufous-headed parrotbill, green tailed sunbird, and no less than four cutia. We had a very nice dinner in the bamboo dining room after which we sat around the woodburner with several of the previously mentioned beers.
