28 Nov. With Steve and Julie Mawby. Left Chiang Mai before light to arrive to Ang Khang by 09:00. As we'd arrived too early to check in at Ban Luang Resort, dropped bags and headed to the Km 21 Trail and spent best part of three hours along the Ridge Trail. Brief views of White-browed Laughingthrush and Spot-throated Babbler, but best find was 30 Spot-winged Grosbeak at a seeding tree halfway along the ridge.

Around midday headed up along the road to the Burma border, parked at the view point and headed steeply uphill. The main target here was Spot-breasted Parrotbill, but despite hard searching none was found. Spent several hours along the ridge, obtaining further poor views of White-browed Laughingthrush, plus a good selection of Phylloscopus warbler including Chinese Leaf Warbler, Buff-throated Warbler and Claudia's Leaf Warbler. Other birds along here included Chestnut-bellied Rock Thrush and many Cook's Swift. The day was completed with the late afternoon along the Mae Phu Trail where Lesser Shortwing seen fleetingly.

After dark walked the complete length of the Mae Phu Trail for night birds with, surprisingly, a single Hodgson's Frogmouth being the only bird either seen or heard. Temperature down to 7 degrees at night.

29 Nov. Out at first light and down the Arunthai road as far as Km 31, for a different attempt at finding Spot-breasted Parrotbill. Another failure on that side, but a good few hours found Grey-headed Parrotbill, Bay Woodpecker, White-bellied Redstart and a male Rufous-bellied Niltava. A late breakfast and out again to the ridge above the Burma road. Still no Spot-breasted Parrotbill, and little else seen. Returned to the Km 21 and Ridge Trails, but little of note. A couple of afternoon trips to the King's Project to check for wintering thrushes showed none present yet this year. A return trip to the Km 21 Trail was disappointing, so finished up the afternoon at the Chinese Cemetery where a group of seven White-browed Laughingthrush seen well. A late afternoon wait at the start of the Mae Phu Trail, and then at dusk an attempt for Hodgson's Frogmouth, but none heard. Very few butterflies in evidence.

Red-billed Scimitar Babbler

30 Nov. Started out for Thaton at 06:00, arriving just after 07:40 having stopped for coffee en route. Had a quick breakfast at the Garden Home Resort and drove up Doi Lang, passing the lower checkpoint without being stopped. Good to see some necessary road repairs have been made to the worst sections, but with only temporary repairs having been made, come the next rains conditions will continue to deteriorate. The road remains not recommended to saloon cars. A couple of stops on the way up gave us a small group of Red-billed Scimitar Babbler and a single female Jerdon's Bush Chat.

Arrived at the main upper forest after 10:00 and worked some lower sections finding White-gorgeted Flycatcher, Rufous-gorgeted Flycatcher, Small Niltava, Himalayan Bluetail and some stunning White-necked Laughingthrush. Up to the upper army camp where we took a longer walk adding Spectacled Barwing, Crimson-breasted Woodpecker, Pallas's Leaf Warbler and Black-eared Shrike-babbler. Early afternoon we visited the highest section of the road finding Common Rosefinch, Black-throated Bushtit and Buff-barred Warbler. The remainder of the day was spent in a series of walks along the upper road back as far as the upper military camp. Not too many species added, but some included Peregrine and Slaty-bellied Tesia. Returned to Thaton just after dark. Surprisingly no owls calling around town. The only butterfly of note on the mountain being Golden Sapphire.

01 Dec. Eastern Barn Owl calling along the river early morning. Up the mountain for first light, which seemed to get darker as we drove up with gloomy cloud and a few spots of rain. First stop at the large bridge with a group of Pin-tailed Parrotfinch flew by. Up as far as the rice terraces but no Jerdon's Bush Chat today. During the day we worked similar areas to yesterday adding a single Martens's Warbler and several Eyebrowed Wren-Babbler. Slowly worked our way to the upper levels with long walks at various points. Best birds including Small Niltava and at last Himalayan Cutia - a species searched for many, many times here and never previously seen. Lower down a stop produced Red-billed Scimitar Babbler with Collared Babbler. Back at Thaton by dusk. Collared Scops Owl calling in the resort garden.

02 Dec. To the Thaton fields a couple of kilometres south of town, where we walked looking for buntings, eventually locating about 20 Yellow-breasted Bunting and a single Chestnut-eared Bunting. Chestnut-capped Babbler was a nice bonus, and a single Pallas's Grasshopper Warbler flushed. A couple of immature Pied Harrier flew over later in the morning. Drove to Chiang Saen. Afternoon for a couple of hours in Nam Kham reserve with a female Jerdon's Bush Chat and a few Baikal Bush Warbler calling. Headed to Nong Bong Kai for a general look around and then to the harrier roost. Better numbers this evening, with about 150 Pied Harrier and Eastern Marsh Harrier in mainly the last 30 minutes of light. Overnight at the River Hill Hotel; first time we'd tried it and not particularly recommended.

03 Dec. Out to Nam Kham at first light. Following the heavy wet season rains the trails and hides were still in a state of repair. Tried several spots to coax Baikal Bush Warbler into view, without success. Few real birds of note, but after a couple of hours of trying eventually a Baikal Bush Warbler gave a brief appearance.

Green Peafowl

After, returned to the Nong Bong Kai Non-hunting area with the species of note being Grey-crowned Warbler and Grey-headed Canary-Flycatcher. Just before lunch we headed back to Chiang Mai, driving through some steady rain, and stopping off at Huai Hong Krai. Due to the long weekend for the King's Birthday holiday we'd expected the area to be packed with visitors. However, it proved to be completely the opposite without a single visitor present. As a result of the peace and quiet, several Green Peafowl were discovered dust bathing around the zoo, but soon took off with our presence. An excellent finish to the day.

04 Dec. Up to the top of Doi Pui early. Despite a sunny day below, the all forest at the top of the mountain was shrouded in fog and decidedly cool and birdless. By 09:00 with few birds found we abandoned the mountain and headed to northern Chiang Mai to look for Brown Prinia, which turned out to be likewise fruitless. Some nearly ponds held a large number of Little Egret including a bird completely grey bodied one, as well as Temminck's Stint, Little Ringed Plover and Wood Sandpiper. By lunchtime called it a day, hoping for better tomorrow.

05 Dec. Early start along the Chae Son National Park access road off Highway 118. We worked the wetter forest along the first 12 or so kilometres finding Small Minivet, Pale Blue Flycatcher, Baikal Bush Warbler, Yellow-bellied Warbler and Slaty-backed Fortktail. Just before midday drove up to the higher elevations and in dryer forest found two Sapphire Flycatcher. Drove back to Chiang Mai for lunch and then proceeded up Doi Pui. The upper stretches of forest here produced White-bellied Redstart, Martens's Warbler, and Rufous-gorgeted Flycatcher. At dark we had a run-around with Mountain Scops Owl which was heard, but as usual unseen. It didn't help that several Suzuki Jeep owners turned up at our stopping point to repair their recently crashed vehicle, which involved a lot of shouting and kicking the vehicle vehemently. This completely ruined our attempt at luring out the owl, so gave up and retuned to Chiang Mai.

06 Dec. Most of the day driving to Khao Yai, arriving just after 17:00, in time to see the last of the parakeets passing behind the Juldis Hotel. These included four Blossom-headed Parakeet mixed in with the scores of Red-breasted Parakeet. Overnight at one of the resorts - In Khao Yai - just outside the park.

07 Dec. Brown Hawk-Owl in the resort garden before light. Into the park as soon as it opened at 06:00. Took a while for the checkpoint to sort out the tickets. First off, up to the HQ area where around the chalets found wintering male White-throated Rock Thrush; a real stunner. After, we drove up to the radar station. Little at the top as quite windy, so walked down the road back finding only a couple of Siberian Blue Robin. Worked our way down the hill pulling out a strongly singing Black-throated Laughingthrush. Coffee for sustenance and then walked the Loop Trail behind the HQ with a group of at least ten Long-tailed Broadbill putting on a spectacular act. Drove to Cha-am, seeing much devastation and still some flooding en route especially between Saraburi and south toward Bangkok. Arrived 18:00 and found a resort along access road to beach.

08 Dec. To the entrance of Kaeng Krachan by 07:00. Initially searched the early parts of the entrance road for Streak-throated Woodpecker but not found, and indeed may not even occur here. After a couple of hours drove up to campsite and walked around - here we ran into Sulphur-breasted Warbler, Chinese Blue Flycatcher and Eastern Crowned Warbler.

After we worked river crossings section, but really quiet and dead. Drove up to km 27 with a couple of stops en route. Best stop was at Km 27 with Ratchet-tailed Treepie, Rufous-browed Flycather, Ashy Minivet and Common Green Magpie. Due to rain, drove back around 15:00 to the hide at Ban Maka, which had Siberian Blue Robin, and distantly heard Large Scimitar Babbler.

09 Dec. We again birded the lower section, and this time were rewarded with a rather skulking Streak-breasted Woodpecker. Straight up to campsite where we spent a couple of hours walking the river section between crossings one and three. Again almost devoid of birds. Best bird seen was probably Greater Necklaced Laughingthrush.

After a couple of hours we gave up this section and drove uphill. Although Kaeng Krachan has a one-way road system with restricted hours up and down, this time no one seemed to care, probably due to the very few visitors. At the very top we stopped for a quick coffee and then continued to the very end of the road at Km 36, walking a few sections but seeing little. An hour at the view point produced a single Wreathed Hornbill and two Black Baza. Late drive back to Cha-am.

10 Dec. To Pak Thale early, stopping en route to successfully search for Freckle-breasted Woodpecker. On our arrival several birders were already searching for Spoon-billed Sandpiper, but our attention was mainly searching through the hundreds of Eurasian Curlew, within which we eventually located several Far Eastern Curlew. Next stop was further toward Laem Phak Bia with Nordmann's Greenshank, Great Knot and Black-faced Spoonbill. By 11:00 we drove to Nong Pla Lai for a cruise around the rice fields in the heat of the day, but other than a few Greater Spotted Eagle, no raptors of note. By mid afternoon returned to Laem Phak Bia to venture out with Mr. Daeng to the sand spit where in a couple of hours we found Heuglin's Gull, Vega Gull, Chinese Egret, Malaysian Plover and a passing Arctic Skua. Overnight in Cha-am with a total lunar eclipse to close the trip.

11 Dec. Return to Chiang Mai.
