29 January - 13 February 2014.
Dry, day temperatures warm to hot, nights cold to pleasant. Some wind. Variable cloud.
Suan Rot Fai, Khao Yai National Park, Phu Khieo Wildlife Sanctuary, Nam Nao National Park, Phu Hin Rong Kla National Park, Laem Phak Bia, Pak Thale, Kaeng Krachan National Park and Mae Ping National Park.

With, Anton and Veronika Sojer, who'd visited Thailand previously several times - hence a couple of weeks to a few less frequently visited areas, plus some standard sites, concentrating on some key specialities.

29 Jan. Considering Thai yo-yo politics and the upcoming election, the drive down to Bangkok from Chiang Mai could potentially have been challenging, especially in light of recent blockading of the main highways by angry rice farmers. However, it proved to be relatively painless without any demonstrations. Joined up with Peter Ericsson, who knowing the currently blockaded streets allowed us to drive to Suan Rot Fai avoiding the mobs. A 45 minute hunt here eventually located the long-staying Northern Boobook, so well worth the effort to get down early. After a couple of celebratory beers, an overnight near the airport.

30 Jan. Collected Anton and Veronika and drove to Khao Yai, checked in at our accommodation and into the park by 14:00. Nice to be out birding again in warm temperatures, following the unseasonable cold in the north. We started with the, by now, well staked-out Mugimaki Flycatcher and White-throated Rock Thrush, neither of which disappointed. The subsequent walk to the nature loop trail produced a couple of Siamese Fireback, but mostly hoards of screaming kids.

Next dealt with the usual hassle of getting a permit to walk on a trail. Not having been content renumbering the trails a few years ago, the staff now have new trail numbers on the map/permit at the office with different trail numbers to those actually on the trail signs. This makes communication with the staff even more confusing, as you need to specify which trail you wish to walk to get a permit. And there are increasing signs that they want you to take a ranger on any trail. As usual, things are becoming more hassle than they are worth.

 

Having heard that Coral-billed Ground Cuckoo had recently been seen behind the kitchens near the HQ, we next decided to stake that out. Amazingly, despite macaques, noise and people, no sooner had we arrived than one scooted over from from forest for a quick raid at the kitchen. This process was repeated several times in the next hour. This must be a trick surely learned from the local macaques. Toward dusk took a slow drive past the saltlicks and out of the park, but no elephant found.

31 Jan. At the entrance gate by the opening hour of 06:00, from where we drove straight to the lower section of Khao Khieo radar station road, where a slow drive successfully found a male Siamese Fireback. An hour or so spent at the upper stretches resulted mainly in Black-throated Laughingthrush.

Blue Pitta

Around 09:00 we headed to the Pha Kluai Mai campsite, where behind the toilet block, the three of us squeezed into one hide, were rewarded with Blue Pitta, Hainan Blue Flycatcher and Orange-headed Thrush at close range. Lunch at the simple campsite restaurant and then onto the gully trail near the HQ, where we encountered another Blue Pitta. A final look for Coral-billed Ground Cuckoo was unsuccessful, mainly due to the number of weekend visitors, so we drove out the park and looked for Red-breasted Parakeet along the entrance road. Oddly we also found a lone, Asian Elephant just outside the forest edge.

1 Feb. A repeat of yesterday morning along the same road failed to produce any interesting species, with the upper stretches particularly hot and birdless. For a change we tried the nature loop trail, but also very quiet, as was the gully trail until we bumped into another Blue Pitta and a good size group of Austen's Brown Hornbill. Late afternoon on the ridge to the wildlife tower but also extremely quiet other than a fruiting tree with Common Hill Myna and Thick-billed Green Pigeon.

2 Feb. We left our accommodation at 05:45 and drove for an hour to Wat Phra Phutthabat Noi. Despite recent undergrowth clearance we, somewhat surprisingly, found a single foraging Limestone Wren-Babbler with ease, plus a further, hidden, bird singing. With no other specific targets in the area we pressed on immediately with the start of the long drive to Phu Khieo, stopping for provisions en route.

White-winged Duck

Even with a permit from Bangkok, getting into Phu Khieo was easier than expected and by 16:00 we still had time for a quick tour of the local ponds. In the late afternoon we watched from a larger lake we'd previously been informed about as a potential site for White-winged Duck. Great Slaty Woodpecker was a nice start, and then we picked out a duck on the far side of the lake. Unfortunately it was ringed, and looked suspiciously like to tame recently released bird we'd seen in November. However, ten minutes after sunset the distinctive honking of an in flight White-winged Duck was heard as it flew in to the opposite side of the lake. Fortunately it landed on a submerged stump, where in the gloom we could definitely make out that it bore no ring.

Ten minutes later a further bird flew in from the opposite direction with both birds eventually heading off into the darkness. Night in the rather basic accommodation available to researchers and visitors at Phu Khieo.

3 Feb. Early morning birding near the headquarters produced Eurasian Jay and Lesser Flameback. At 08:00, whilst waiting for our guide, we joined the staff in the daily office opening, flag hoisting and national anthem. Set out for Mon Lake by 09:00 with the walk there taking just over two hours, or about four kilometres. A few small ponds en route didn't hold any White-winged Duck, and as we arrived at the lake in the heat of the day there were none there either. A walk around the accessible edges looked promising with lots of flooded weeds and grass, but no duck disturbed. It appears to be more reliable in the evening when a bird or two might come to roost in trees around the lake. The return walk was fairly productive with several Heart-spotted Woodpecker, Sultan Tit, Black-throated Laughingthrush and a group of four Silver Pheasant resting in the middle of the track. From 15:00 - 17:00 we tried the two photography hides; the first being completely dead, but the second much better with Orange-headed Thrush, a range of bulbuls, Siberian Blue Robin, Bar-backed Partridge, Indochinese Ground Squirrel and Lesser Mousedeer. Late afternoon return to the nearby lake with this time only a single flyover White-winged Duck. An entertaining hunt for Mountain Scops Owl was eventually successful in finding the bird.

4 Feb. Morning around the HQ whilst waiting for the office to open so that you could pay up and get underway. Birded along the entrance road till 11:00 when too hot. Austen's Brown Hornbill heard as well as Orange-breasted Trogon. Drove to Nam Nao, where we took a hot afternoon walk along the 4.5 kilometre trail, finding White-bellied Woodpecker, Blossom-headed Parakeet, Sultan Tit and Large Woodshrike. Late afternoon in drier habitat on the opposite side of the highway, with Indian Cuckoo and Brown Prinia.

5 Feb. Cool early on, as we headed up through the drier forest to the viewpoint. Little early activity other than Rufous Woodpecker and several Blossom-headed Parakeet. Next spent several hours on the nature loop trail, where in the wetter forest we found Bar-backed Partridge, Silver Pheasant, Orange-breasted Trogon, Red-headed Trogon, Blue-eared Kingfisher, Blue Pitta, Red-billed Scimitar Babbler and Collared Babbler. Later in the day along the Phu Ghoom Khao track but again quiet.

6 Feb. Another walk along the dry viewpoint ridge. Better this time, with Golden-crested Myna, Burmese Nuthatch, Blossom-headed Parakeet and several White-bellied Woodpecker. Moved on to Lom Sak and up the mountain of Phu Hin Rong Kla, where we arrived at 13:30. Jerdon's Bush Chat easily found, as was Dusky Crag Martin. Two bigger surprises were a Chestnut-eared Bunting and failing to find any Nepal House Martin. Inside the park we walked the nodule field trail which was great for interesting geology but ornithologically the only bird of note was further Dusky Crag Martin. On the drive out, down the mountain, we recorded a single Burmese Shrike.

7 Feb. Left Lom Sak at 06:00. A wonderful, hassle-free and traffic-free drive down to Bangkok until we hit the Outer Ringroad, Highway 9, where we encountered very heavy traffic for all the drive past Bangkok. Having eventually reached Laem Phak Bia our fist stop was the King's Project for the recently discovered Bay-backed Shrike. The bird showed well for about a minute, then promptly disappeared, after which we gave up waiting and moved to try for the recently reported Collared Pratincole This proved rather difficult with strong winds, a harrier harassing any Oriental Pratincole in the area, so after a couple of hours gave up and tried the area around the rubbish dump, where Indochinese Bush Lark and Plain-backed Sparrow were the pick of the bunch.

8 Feb. We started with a Spoon-billed Sandpiper hunt at Pak Thale. An hour in their more regular spot failed to turn up any. Whilst scanning through heaps of waders, continuing our quest, we were ably assisted by Neil Lawton who's group had just found a single Spoon-billed Sandpiper. Although the bird promptly disappeared it was relocated and some reasonable views, and poor photos, obtained. Back to Laem Phak Bia, where we found at least twenty Nordmann's Greenshank as well as Pied Avocet. This was followed by a revisit to the King's Project, where the Bay-backed Shrike was much more cooperative as well as a couple of Greater Painted-snipe found. In the late morning heat a scan from the abandoned building gave us a good group of Red-necked Phalarope.

At 13:00 we took the boat out to the sandspit with Mr. Daeng. Very low water, and it was necessary to walk through some mud to get to shore. Many birds present including at least five Pallas's Gull, six Heuglin's Gull, White-fronted Plover, Malaysian Plover, Chinese Egret and many Caspian Tern. Headed off to Kaeng Krachan.

9 Feb. We spent all day, and probably regretted it, between Km 27 - 30 looking for Ratchet-tailed Treepie. An extremely quiet day with very few, even common, birds found. By the evening we'd been totally gripped off by several others reporting Leopard on the road up between Km 25 and 27. Many beers to commiserate a petty awful day.

10 Feb. Morning at the Ban Song Nok photo hide. Some good variety of species, though not the hoped for Bar-backed Partridge. Afternoon along the lower stream crossings between stream crossings 2 and 3, with Tickell's Brown Hornbill briefly, Great Slaty Woodpecker, lots of Dusky Langur and White-handed Gibbon. Golden-crested Myna on the drive out.

11 Feb. Morning in Lung Sin hide, with a different collection of species such as Bar-backed Partridge and Large Scimitar Babbler heard. Many more squirrels and a Lesser Mousedeer. At midday left for Bangkok with no heavy traffic and an airport drop off three hours later. Returned to Laem Phak Bia for the last hour of light, where met up with Gary Kinard at the Collared Pratincole which was successfully photographed. Overnight in Phetchaburi.

Collared Pratincole

12 Feb. An early return with Gary to Laem Phak Bia, effectively starting where we'd left off the previous evening. The Collared Pratincole had remained in roughly same area, and was quickly relocated, although it had been joined by a good number of Oriental Pratincole Other species of note included Oriental Skylark, Painted Stork flying over, Asian Golden Plover and Long-toed Stint. After an hour, departed northward. A long and difficult drive to Li complicated by an instant tyre deflation - on a new tyre! - on the expressway and very heavy traffic on the Bangkok ring roads with lengthy queues at toll stations. Finally arrived Li at 20:00.

13 Feb. A cool start to the day, with early birding along the Thung Kik road. Grey-headed Parakeet in evidence as well as the usual variety of woodpeckers, with White-bellied Woodpecker, Black-headed Woodpecker, Greater Flameback and Common Flameback. Some other notables during the morning were Red-billed Blue Magpie, Rufous Treepie and Large Woodshrike. In the heat of the day, after 11:00, returned to Chiang Mai.
