Taiwan - Day 4 - 5/12/14

Dasyeushan Road incl. Amnashan etc
The day dawned extremely foggy and unfortunately this stayed into the early afternoon despite driving to higher elevations. We struggled with two species of Laughingthrushes but thankfully a flock of Golden Parrotbills lifted our spirits. Despite the weather, a fair spread of species were seen, with the main highlights seen in the last couple of hours of daylight. An Owling session proved pointless but what was encouraging was a clear night.
