Ladakh, India.

A few birds from Ladakh.
White winged Redstart.
Along the Indus valley near Leh they were very common. Sometimes 50+ in one bush! Though never allowed a close approach.

Robin Accentor.
Mostly seen high up in Hemis National Park where they were seen daily.

Himalayan Snowcock usually heard before being seen. Call similar to Great northern Diver.

Fire fronted Serin. seen daily in Hemis.

You had better luck with Himalayan Snowcock than we did in Kazakhstan. We saw 3 on one day but nowhere as near as your trip. Just happy to get them!!
