1 Dec. With Dick and Jen Byrne. A trip around the upper half of Thailand with a target list of a hundred or so species. Having completed the drive down from Chiang Mai and overnighted near the airport in Bangkok, set off early to Bangpoo to investigate whether any of the previously interesting gulls were still hanging around; there having been Slender-billed Gull, Lesser Black-backed Gull, Pallas's Gull and Vega Gull all within the last month.

A beautiful day, with excellent light. Three hours of intense grilling through the several thousand Brown-headed Gull failed to produce the hoped for Slender-billed Gull, but did turn up an immature Black-tailed Gull and at least 15 Black-headed Gull.

Headed to the airport for a late afternoon meet up with Dick and Jen, from where we drove to Kaeng Krachan, arriving late, around 23:15.

2 Dec. An early start, despite last night's late arrival, at the entrance gate from where we drove up to Km 27 and walked the road to about Km 28. A couple of hours here, and then a drive/walk down birding, produced Ratchet-tailed Treepie, Rufous browed Flycatcher and, most surprisingly, a blue morph Rufous-winged Philentoma. In the afternoon walked the forest between the second and third river crossing, but birding really quiet with little seen. An evening attempt at spotlighting Collared Scops Owl was close but not close enough.

3 Dec. All day in Ban Song Nok hide. Originally we'd planned to spend only the morning here, but with Green-legged Partridge not appearing before midday we decided to remain the whole afternoon as well. This was rather successful with the late afternoon giving excellent views of Red-legged Crake and Green-legged Partridge.

During the day we additionally recorded Kalij Pheasant and heard several Large Scimitar Babbler. Interestingly, one of the "Pale-legged" Leaf Warblers showed a contrasting grey crown that potentially hinted at Sakhalin Leaf Warbler, though given the identification nightmare of this species, on current knowledge, it could have been either.

4 Dec. An early drive into Kaeng Krachan was rewarded with a Dhole along the road giving extended views. A cool start to the day birding beyond Ban Krang camp, but again with little activity. All morning spent in this area as far as the third stream crossing but with only a couple of feeding flocks encountered; best birds being Sultan Tit, Swinhoe's Minivet, Orange-breasted Trogon and Black-winged Cuckooshrike. Late afternoon spent outside the park hunting for Large Scimitar Babbler without success. Revisited Ban Song Nok and were splendidly rewarded with both Slaty-legged Crake and Red-legged Crake.

5 Dec. Early morning in yet another hunt for Large Scimitar Babbler, that was again heard only - fast becoming a pain in the neck - with the remainder of the morning spent along the entrance road of Kaeng Krachan. Seemingly very quiet at this time of year, with only Sultan Tit and Green-eared Barbet of note. By 11:00, with temperatures rising, we headed toward Laem Phak Bia, checking into accommodation in Phetchaburi en route. The heat of the day spent grilling waders at Pak Thale, which resulted in a single Asian Dowitcher, followed by three Spoon-billed Sandpiper. At dusk we visited the rubbish tip, where at least 25 White-shouldered Starling found.

6 Dec. To Laem Phak Bia at first light, where it took a couple of hours hunting to find Nordmann's Greenshank. Then to Pak Thale where the single Asian Dowitcher from yesterday was not relocated. In the heat of the day we visited the sandspit with Khun Daeng, where although no White-faced Plover we had Chinese Egret and a couple of Heuglin's Gull. Late afternoon spent driving the fields at Nong Pla Lai where large numbers of weavers raiding rice crops included several Asian Golden Weaver.

7 Dec. Drove to Saraburi and checked into accommodation north of town that had been found in a hasty internet search the previous evening. Being between holidays celebrating the King's birthday and his coronation, many places had been full. When the heat of the day had subsided we headed to Wat Phra Phutthabat Noi where we quickly located a pair of Limestone Wren-Babbler. A further couple of hours stroll produced Hainan Blue Flycatcher and Thick-billed Warbler.

8 Dec. Drove from Saraburi to Khao Yai National Park and into the park by 08:30. Our first port of call was the usual photographer's stakeout, where both White-throated Rock Thrush and Mugimaki Flycatcher were still present. A walk on the loop Nature Trail had Red-headed Trogon but little else, as the place was crawling with visitors. Lunch in the park cafe and then on to the nearby gully trails, but no sign of any pittas. Laced Woodpecker was a bonus. On a late afternoon, slow drive out of park seven Asian Elephant were present at one of the saltlicks, despite the large numbers of cars, noise and tourists.

9 Dec. Joined the queue at the park entrance gate before 06:00 and, in the dark, drove to the radar station road. A slow drive, at first light, along the lower levels of the road produced nothing, but a second pass was rewarded with a male Siamese Fireback. At the top of the hill were at least nine Black-throated Laughingthrush, and a walk down the road found two groups of Silver Pheasant. Mid to late morning spent back along the lower levels, with good numbers of birds active until almost noon, including Green-legged Partridge, Black-and-buff Woodpecker, Blue Pitta briefly, Large Scimitar Babbler heard, Mountain Imperial Pigeon and a Hainan Blue Flycatcher. The afternoon spent slowly walking the Nature Trail, but again no pittas; just Common Green Magpie and Red-headed Trogon.

10 Dec. At first light we again hit the lower radar road, with several Siamese Fireback seen. We then decided to try the Km 33 Nature Trail, where best of the bunch were Red-headed Trogon, and Large Woodshrike. However, the trail was busy with a constant procession of guided groups of mainly European tourists, many chatting noisily. After lunch we retried the gully trails, that were rather quiet for several hours but eventually produced a pair Austen's Brown Hornbill. On our return to the HQ area we ran into over 100 school children which rather killed our attempts at Eared Pitta.

11 Dec. Still in search of the elusive Eared Pitta and Coral-billed Ground Cuckoo, we started early on the loop Nature Trail. Unfortunately rather quiet, other than several Red-headed Trogon, Changeable Hawk-Eagle and a few calling Long-tailed Broadbill. We then drove to the other side of the park, and tried the Orchid Waterfall Trail, noting that this trail is now closed beyond the waterfall for maintenance. However the stretch to the waterfall was still open, though suffering from tree falls. This trail also appears to have had a massive bamboo die-off, and looks barren with missing undergrowth. None of our targets found, but some nice mixed flocks with Black-winged Cuckooshrike, Greater Flameback and Great Iora. Along the river an active and vocal Blue-eared Kingfisher proved difficult to pin down. Following lunch we tried the Km 33 Trail again, but after 20 minutes our path was blocked by a group of Asian Elephant, so we retreated to the loop Nature Trail once again, where we spent the whole afternoon slowly circumnavigating the loop, finding Siamese Fireback, Red-headed Trogon and Green-legged Partridge. Despite considerable effort nothing on the Eared Pitta front. So again leaving Khao Yai with the nemesis pitta still unfound.

12 Dec. An eight hour drive to Li and on to Mae Ping National Park in the late afternoon from 15:00. Our first bird, out of the car, was amazingly a group of Great Slaty Woodpecker. Other species of note included Rufous-winged Buzzard, Grey-headed Parakeet, Oriental Scops Owl. White-bellied Woodpecker, Black-headed Woodpecker, Red-billed Blue Magpie and Burmese Nuthatch. A late return to Li.

13 Dec. Overcast, cool and with, surprisingly, a few rain showers that made the start of the day very quiet. We commenced in the grasslands beyond Thung Kik hoping for Chinese Francolin, but the area was equally as dead as the forest. Returned to the forest road around 09:00 with a few small mixed flocks plus Great Slaty Woodpecker, Grey-headed Parakeet and Black-headed Woodpecker.

After lunch in town, we drove to Doi Inthanon where the weather deteriorated suddenly to showers and heavy rain at the summit. Consequently we retreated to lower levels at Km 37 where in the gloom we managed to find Spectacled Barwing and Rufous-backed Sibia. Lucked onto a Dark-sided Thrush in the gully behind Mr. Daeng's.

14 Dec. Some overnight rain. We initially drove to the summit area, through varying degrees of fog and cloud, from where we spent half an hour scanning in the wind and mist for Ashy Wood Pigeon without luck, so retreated to the Ang Ka Nature Trail that was equally disappointing. Mid morning at Km 37 where we walked the track finding Slaty-bellied Tesia, Hume's Treecreeper and a couple of White-gorgeted Flycatcher. The whole afternoon spent along the Km 34 jeep track finding Rufous Turtle Dove, Maroon Oriole, Buff-throated Warbler, Grey-crowned Warbler, Chestnut-crowned Warbler, Chestnut-capped Babbler, White-necked Laughingthrush, and a Common Rosefinch.

15 Dec. Following overnight rain, a windy, cool and damp morning. Little point in heading to the summit given the weather, so we drove to the Parakeet Conservation Area just outside the park, where we were immediately rewarded with at least 30 Blossom-headed Parakeet. Other interesting species included Chestnut-capped Babbler, Black-hooded Oriole, Rosy Minivet, Plain-backed Sparrow, Cook's Swift and Himalayan Swiftlet. Returned to Mr. Daeng's Shop for a late breakfast, during which heavy rain started. After waiting out the rain we headed to Km 34, but low cloud and more rain forced us to reevaluate the options, so we headed lower. However, more rain meant little seen between dodging showers. Finally around 16:00 the skies cleared allowing us to ascend to the summit, but strong winds, cloud and cold weather meant a short walk on the boardwalk was almost birdless, other than than a single Dark-sided Thrush. Descended to around Km 42 for some final birding before calling it a day and heading back to the accommodation to do something far more sensible - drinking beer. Not a single photo taken today.

16 Dec. With disappearing cloud overnight, the temperature at the summit early morning had dropped to 4°C with a ground frost, that Thai tourists were busy photographing. Our attempts to find Ashy Wood Pigeon failed, but several Rufous-throated Partridge were feeding around the visitor centre and we found Himalayan Bluetail and Rufous-gorgeted Flycatcher. We then descended to Km 43 where a number of fruiting bushes were found, but not Yellow-bellied Flowerpecker - although a couple of Speckled Wood Pigeon flew over and a female Slaty-backed Flycatcher was seen. Late morning and early afternoon around Km 34 track gave a nice selection including Clicking Shrike-babbler, Vivid Niltava and Large Niltava. Afternoon return to Chiang Mai.

17-18 Dec. Break in Chiang Mai.

19 Dec. Drove to Chiang Dao where we initially visited the temple area. Streaked Wren-Babbler was the pick of the morning's sightings. After lunch we tried local fields and ponds, finding a good number of Grey-crowned Warbler, vocal Pallas's Grasshopper Warbler and a number of Common Rosefinch.

20 Dec. An 05:30 start to drive to the DYK ranger station on Doi Chiang Dao, arriving around 07:00 for first light. After three days of heavy rain last week the road condition had deteriorated somewhat, especially the top couple of kilometres with some deep ruts and washouts. Greeted on arrival by the ranger's new dog - very friendly, and soft in the head, that decided to follow us along the ridge track. Our main target of Giant Nuthatch was thankfully found relatively easily, and during the morning's walk along the ridge and summit trails some good species included, Slender-billed Oriole, Mountain Bamboo Partridge, Cook's Swift, Sapphire Flycatcher and Rufous-gorgeted Flycatcher. Around midday we descended back in the direction of Chiang Dao, stopping for longer walks en route, but not adding significantly to the list.

21 Dec. A relaxing start to the day with breakfast at 07:00 followed by a hike up the rather steep Chiang Dao Nature Trail. At the trail entrance we had fleeting views of White-tailed Robin before ascending to higher levels, where we had at least four Bamboo Woodpecker; including three drumming males - an amazing record for such a rare and elusive woodpecker. Also Siberian Blue Robin, but the hoped for Asian Stubtail was not found. From here we entered the temple area and headed up the Gully Trail, where we had Northern White-crowned Forktail, Greater Necklaced Laughingthrush and Siberian Blue Robin.

A return to the temple area was finally rewarded with two Asian Stubtail. In the afternoon we walked the Muang Khong road with a further pair of Bamboo Woodpecker and White-browed Piculet, but little else.

22 Dec. Today we dedicated the morning to searching for Silver-breasted Broadbill along the Muang Khong road, but unfortunately came up empty-handed again. In the process we found a further four Bamboo Woodpecker and Great Iora. Left after lunch to drive to Doi Ang Khang. Late afternoon around Ban Luang and the cemetery area, that had Grey-winged Blackbird, White-headed Bulbul, up to eight White-browed Laughingthrush and a close group of five Mrs. Hume's Pheasant. Very cold overnight.

23 Dec. Early morning scraping ice off the car windscreen, and then around the Chinese Cemetery area with White-browed Laughingthrush and a female Daurian Redstart. We spent some time trying for Spot-breasted Parrotbill and Russet Bush Warbler but failed miserably. Late morning along the Firebreak Trail was initially rather quiet but some good species included Vivid Niltava, Spot-throated Babbler, Scarlet-faced Liocichla and Asian Stubtail. After lunch returned to the cemetery and headed down the Arunothai road seeking Spot-breasted Parrotbill, but no luck.

24 Dec. For a change of scenery and a different set of birds we undertook a day trip to Doi Lang. Left Ang Khang at 06:00 and were on the western slope around 07:30 where we stopped for breakfast in the early morning sun, together with Ultramarine Flycatcher and Blue Rock Thrush. The new entrance gate now charges the standard park fee, but we were told one ticket can be used seven days. After the first army checkpoint, an attempt to find Chestnut Bunting was rewarded with many Little Bunting and Crested Bunting. A later walk at higher levels provided us with a number of great birds including Spot-breasted Parrotbill and White-browed Laughingthrush. Then on to the wetter side of the mountain with both Himalayan Bluetail and Red-flanked Bluetail, as well as Chestnut-headed Tesia, White-gorgeted Flycatcher and Large Niltava.

Late afternoon on the return to Ang Khang we had White-tailed Robin.

25 Dec. Up just after sunrise and again de-iced the car as temperature had dropped overnight to zero. Early morning spent along the upper stretches of the Arunothai road and around the Ban Luang to Chinese Cemetery areas with Russet Bush Warbler seen briefly as well as White-browed Laughingthrush, Scarlet-faced Liocichla, numerous White-headed Bulbul and Rusty-necked Scimitar Babbler. The King's Project was our next stop, where the usual photography stakeout held only White-tailed Robin and a single Black-breasted Thrush. Afternoon in similar areas to the morning with little new found.

26 Dec. The coldest start to date, with temperatures just below freezing. A couple of hours along the Arunothai road produced Chinese Leaf Warbler and Russet Bush Warbler, but little else. Moving on toward Fang we had a 20 minute stop in the Fang paddies in passing with Oriental Skylark and Thick-billed Warbler. Afternoon on Doi Lang where the road up the eastern side likewise now has an entrance fee, with the road in very poor condition - nothing having been repaired since last year. However, it appears that a major repair/construction of the road is planned as all along were new surveyor's trig points and clearing of the adjacent verges. A widening of the road will probably be unwelcome to birders and would seem to herald the way to an opening up of Doi Lang to general tourists with noodle stands, karaoke campsites, visitor centres and such like to follow? The biggest surprise on the way up was a pair of Grey-winged Blackbird. Several other very unexpected species followed including Barred Cuckoo-Dove, Striated Heron and Asian Fairy-bluebird. Only the lower slopes were worked as we returned to Thaton before dark.

27 Dec. Up Doi Lang for first light, though the hoped-for Mountain Bamboo Partridge were nonexistent. A cool and overcast morning, but some good birds included White-necked Laughingthrush, Collared Babbler, Long-tailed Minivet and Red-billed Scimitar Babbler. Moving higher into the mountain a number of stops found Slaty-bellied Tesia, Grey-winged Blackbird, Little Bunting and further White-necked Laughingthrush. At the army camp we started to run into the holiday weekend crowds of photographers, ascending from the western side. A couple of longer walks after the camp gave us the very unexpected Coral-billed Scimitar Babbler, White's Thrush and more Collared Babbler. Late afternoon looking for Chestnut Bunting that was unfortunately heard only and a finish at one of the photo stakeouts with Large Niltava, Siberian Rubythoat, Orange-bellied Niltava and Silver-eared Laughingthrush. Overnight at Thaton.

28 Dec. Early start to drive to Chiang Dao. Overcast and cool and not looking particularly good for birding. Our main target here was yet another attempt at finding Silver-breasted Broadbill. With that in mind we hiked up the Nature Trail and then onto the steep Fence Trail. However, our efforts were finally rewarded with a group of at least six Silver-breasted Broadbill, as well as Banded Kingfisher - no more than a handful of records from Chiang Dao - as well as Long-tailed Broadbill and Streaked Wren-Babbler. We finished with a quick look in the temple gully which had a single Eyebrowed Wren-Babbler. Back to Chiang Mai in heavy traffic at the beginning of the New Year celebrations.
