We did see a flock of around 80 to 100 Altai Accentors they would wheel around, land, then disappear into the long grass, they were on view nearly the whole of the time we were here but we never got a good view of them.

In the afternoon we decided to try and catch up with Woodpeckers a family that had successfully avoided us all morning. We birded an area called Binok Road where we had great views of Scaly-fronted Woodpecker plus Rock Bunting and several Red-flanked Bluetail. We then drove slowly back along the road through the forest, about half-way down Lokesh stopped the van and announced he had a woodpecker, not one but at least five including the bird that had eluded us most of the day Rufous-fronted Woodpecker plus another new species in the form of Himalayan Woodpecker.
