Impressive list of thrushes there.
I paid a visit during the morning of 22 November and highlights were:
Red-rumped Swallow 4
Red-throated Flycatcher 1
Hainan Blue Flycatcher 1 male (seen well, rare winter record)
Also a Wild Boar feeding right out in the open in the valley bottom.

I have seen a blue flycatcher with white chest far away behind the tree on 20 Nov but not sure still Hainan Blue Flycatcher in Winter.
Besides, I have seen a blue flycatcher with white chest but brown wing on 19 Nov that I think it's Blue and white flycatcher. Greenish Warbler, Rubythroat and yellow breast bunting also seen on 19 Nov.
Some thrushes seen eating and resting on the tree in the woodland in Pak Fa Lam on 21 Nov. Author: ckwokwing Time: 2/12/2009 19:51
