With Dick Byrne. A Thailand clean-up. With Dick having birded extensively in Asia and Thailand previously, this trip targeted a small number of widely scattered species, many of which would be classified somewhere between difficult to impossible. Given the small number of targets at each locality, this trip covered a wide area with some lengthy drives.

3 Jan. Met up at Phuket airport late morning, from where we headed directly north to Khao Lak. Being the end of the New Year holiday, police at the Phuket Gateway were actually breathalysing motorists. Having passed that one, checked in and repacked for tomorrow's boat to Similan, we had a quick look at nearby Laem Pakarang, for the recently reported Crab-plover, that was surprisingly still around, plus Pacific Reef Heron, Grey Plover, Terek Sandpiper, Little Tern and Oriental Dollarbird.

4 Jan. As the simplest and most cost-effective way of reaching Nicobar Pigeon in Thailand is to participate in one of the awful, touristic snorkeling trips to the Simillan islands, we grinned and bared it. Pick up was 20 minutes later than planned, but otherwise the logistics were fine as we joined 30 other trippers on one of the ridiculously fast boats - forget about any birding en route. There appears to be a never-ending race among the companies offering these trips to see who can provide the fastest journey, so a line of boats with upward of 1,000 HP are at the jetty; covering the 80 kilometres in just over an hour. Being a snorkeling trip our first stop was at what remains of one of the reefs for a 45 minute plunge. A number of fish in evidence, but only around 20 species seen - contrasting significantly to what would have been on display several years previously.

By noon we'd arrived at the small beach of Island 4, where we joined around 300 other trippers for a beach lunch. A single Nicobar Pigeon was found at the edge of the beach. oblivious to the throngs. Having arranged an overnight stay, we walked the short trail to the main beach and checked into our small chalet. After, during the heat of the day, we climbed the trail to the highest point on the island, ostensibly for the view, but mostly to avoid the crowds. From the viewpoint both White-bellied Sea Eagle and Pied Imperial Pigeon seen. After 15:00, with the departure of all day trippers, we headed back to the small beach where at least a dozen Nicobar Pigeon were hoovering up scraps. On our return to the main beach, at least a further 15 pigeons were likewise engaged. Seems the ballooning number of tourists are supporting a significant increase in the number of Nicobar Pigeon. However, the impact on the islands and its reefs, of uncontrolled numbers of visitors, is significant. One of the local guides was lamenting that tourist numbers were totally unrestricted, and we estimated at least 2,000 people had hit the island that day. Not a trip we'd want to repeat. Trees around the camp site held a number of Island Flying-fox. Mosquitoes rather prevalent.

5 Jan. With the masses gone, a quiet night. A dawn stroll found an impressive 27 Nicobar Pigeon around the campsite, with an unexpected immature Malayan Night Heron as well as Green Imperial Pigeon and Pied Imperial Pigeon.

We departed the island at 13:00 with the boat scheduling another snorkeling stop off Island 8. What a sight! At least 60 boats, 200 snorkelers and probably 1,000 tourists swarming over the island. Decided to stay on the boat offshore, where a white morph Pacific Reef Heron found - scarce in Thailand. An even faster return boat ride, though it helped little as had to wait for the slower boats to arrive to fill up the mini busses for the hotel drop-off. Overnight again at Khao Lak.

6 Jan. A short drive to Sri Phang-nga, where we walked the Waterfall Trail in an attempt for Rufous-collared Kingfisher, that was unobliging in showing itself. Other than that Bushy-crested Hornbill heard, Lesser Fish Eagle and Thick-billed Green Pigeon. Next we continued to Phang-nga town where, after dropping bags at the hotel, visited the Queen's Garden in the very heat of the day. Unsurprisingly little seen, though a couple of Rufous-bellied Swallow did eventually turn up. A visit to the mangrove walkway on the opposite side of the highway produced the biggest surprise of the trip, in the form of a Von Schrenck's Bittern skulking in the mangrove roots, and a great find. Other mangrove patches produced a good afternoon's haul, with Chestnut-bellied Malkoha, Streak-breasted Woodpecker and Brown-winged Kingfisher. A late afternoon drive, through heavy rain, to Ao Leuk where we tried for Oriental Bay Owl - heard but stubbornly refusing to be seen; not even a twig moving. Frustrating.

7 Jan. Further heavy overnight rain, but dry by morning. Having had such a high level of success yesterday. we were either on a roll or going to hit the proverbial brick wall of mopping up targets. However, it seemed like the former when a visit to another mangrove spot amazingly produced Mangrove Pitta - a species almost impossible to find outside of the breeding season. Also Mangrove Whistler.

A return visit to Queen's Park produced nothing of note, so in the heat of the day we took a siesta before heading out once more to Ao Leuk, where again we heard, but could not connect with, Oriental Bay Owl.

8 Jan. A very early 04:20 departure for yet another attempt at Oriental Bay Owl with, unfortunately, similar results of a bird calling at close range but dense vegetation preventing any view. Brown Wood Owl, Sunda Scops Owl and Eastern Bay Owl heard pre dawn.

Drove to Krabi where we took a leisurely breakfast near the waterfront, then drove the short distance inland to Khao Phanombencha, spending the afternoon along the short river trail looking mainly at butterflies, but also fruiting trees around the campsite that produced Crested Honey Buzzard, Thick-billed Green Pigeon, Chestnut-breasted Malkoha, Silver-rumped Spinetail, Sooty Barbet, Large Woodshrike and Greater Green Leafbird. We remained in the area after dark hoping for Barred Eagle Owl, but the only nocturnal species recorded were Grey Nightjar, Sunda Scops Owl, Brown Hawk-Owl and Brown Wood Owl.

9 Jan. A four hour drive to Krung Ching, a quick lunch, then straight to the park where we slowly walked the first kilometre of the Waterfall Trail. A huge fruiting tree held a couple of the very desirable Scaly-breasted Bulbul in addition to numerous barbets, bulbuls and leafbirds. A night session along the entrance road was unsuccessful in locating Blyth's Frogmouth - surprisingly not even heard.

10 Jan. We again worked the Waterfall Trail, spending the whole morning walking the first half. Highlights were Rufous-collared Kingfisher and a single White-crowned Hornbill, as well as better views of yesterday's Scaly-breasted Bulbul. Other honourable mentions included Great Argus heard, Violet Cuckoo, Orange-breasted Trogon, Chestnut-breasted Malkoha, Blyth's Hawk-Eagle, Sooty Barbet, Dusky Broadbill and Buff-rumped Woodpecker. A short break during the heat of the afternoon, after which we headed out, driving various side roads scanning forested hillsides in the hope of finding Golden-crested Myna. After dinner we tried a totally different area for Blyth's Frogmouth, with superb views of a perched individual. Definitely a highlight.

11. Jan. An ominously overcast morning, with us starting at the viewpoint near the headquarters, in a vain hope for Golden-crested Myna, followed by a thorough check of the trees around the park headquarters, then again onto the Waterfall Trail. Our birding was however cut short with rain at 10:00 continuing until after lunch, when we tried a series of open areas outside the park but with little of interest found other than Whiskered Treeswift and a flyby Wallace's Hawk-Eagle. Rain again at 16:00 continued into the evening.

12 Jan. A relative lay in till 06:30, then a drive to Chumphon, arriving around midday. In a display of misplaced enthusiasm we birding the stadium area at 13:00 but, as expected, hot and birdless, so retired to town for refreshment before returning at 15:00. What was that about mad dogs and Englishmen? Of course at a sensible hour, we successfully connected with several Vinous-breasted Starling as well as a single Peregrine Falcon overhead.

13 Jan. An early start, with us boating into the mangroves at dawn. Over the next hour and a half a total of at least 50 Pale-capped Pigeon flew over in small groups, as well as a single Western Osprey.

Back on the road at 09:00 heading north to Kaeng Krachan, arriving by 14:00. So with time to spare, we decided to try the local hide where Ferruginous Partridge had been seen very intermittently over the last couple of months. No luck on that front, and only the usual suspects plus Kalij Pheasant and Green-legged Partridge of note.

14 Jan. Although a Sunday - when popular parks better avoided due to crowds - needs must, so early morning we tried the entry road for Tickelll's Brown Hornbill and Golden-crested Myna, both of which had been found in the last couple of days. Luck seemed to desert us, and try as we might, no success with either. Mid afternoon we tried Lung Sin's hide where, the main target Large Scimitar Babbler, put in a brief appearance. After dark we tried locally for Oriental Bay Owl but only discovered total silence.

15 Jan. A repeat of the yesterday morning, early along the entrance road; this time with better success in the form of a group of eight Tickell's Brown Hornbill. Unfortunately no Golden-crested Myna despite the fruiting trees still looking good, so we headed up the mountain, where responsive, but very hard to glimpse Bar-backed Partridge kept us entertained for a good hour. A return to lower levels, with Blue Pitta heard but not seen. Late afternoon again at fruiting trees, with excellent close Great Hornbill, but dipped again on the myna - a very frustrating bird, though not nearly as frustrating as Oriental Bay Owl which was again heard during an evening foray but stubbornly refused to show itself.

16 Jan. Started the day, pre-breakfast with yet another attempt for Oriental Bay Owl, but not even heard, followed by another session along the park entrance road in search of the elusive Golden-crested Myna, which remained so. However, during the morning we had great success in searching for Blue Pitta with an excellent male seen well. In the heat of the day a couple of hours hide session, in the vague hope of Eared Pitta, then back to the park for yet another unsuccessful hunt for Golden-crested Myna.

17 Jan. A final, seventh, attempt for Oriental Bay Owl was again unfruitful so immediately after breakfast we set off toward Khao Yai. We had originally planned a short stop around Ratchaburi to look for Rain Quail, but recent news told of no habitat due to the water level of the lake flooding all adjacent habitat. So instead we decided to try an area near Pak Chong, where also water levels were high, but at least some habitat remained.

This was astonishingly successful with more than 30 Rain Quail found in the heat of the day, presumably mainly on account of the limited habitat having a higher than usual density of birds. Flushed with success, mid afternoon we hit Khao Yai for a short while, but little seen. We visited the park visitor centre to enquire of any recent sightings of Coral-billed Ground Cuckoo. Amazingly, the staff informed us of a recent sighting along the Khao Khieo road.

18 Jan. Full with anticipation we were the first customers at the entrance gate to Khao Yai at 06:00, paid the steep 400 Baht entrance fee and headed straight to the Khao Khieo road, where we birded the lower sections of road.

However, no sign of either the ground cuckoo or Blue Pitta. We then chanced into a couple of photographers who informed us that indeed ground cuckoos had been seen, but behind the toilet block several kilometres away. Somehow the visitor centre staff had gotten their information mixed up. So, legging it as fast as possible over to the campsite, we joined a melee of photographers descending on the spot and erected our hide. After a short wait, not one, but three Coral-billed Ground Cuckoo were attracted to this spot with excellent views given. Even better, a subsequent hunt around the campsite produced three Golden-crested Myna, the species that had eluded us so well in Kaeng Krachan. This was turning into a splendid day.

After a quick lunch at the campsite restaurant, we headed back to the Khao Khieo road where a Blue Pitta had apparently been staked out by photographers. And as luck would have it, after only 20 minutes a female Blue Pitta hopped into view, posing for photos. What a day.

19 Jan, A lengthy drive north to Phu Hin Rong Kla near Phetchabun, arriving by midday. Jerdon's Bush Chat is regular here, but today was incredibly obliging, with a pair found within a minute or two of our arrival. Having so easily achieved our target we then opted to spend the rest of the afternoon wandering around the general area finding a further three Jerdon's Bush Chat plus Burmese Shrike, Cook's Swift, Grey-backed Shrike, Dusky Crag Martin, at least 200 Nepal House Martin and Chestnut-capped Babbler. Overnight at Lomsak.

20 Jan. Drove to Phu Suan Sai where, during the morning, a couple of pairs of Rufous-throated Fulvetta found. A walk of the loop Nature Trail didn't produce much at all, but the morning's tally included Speckled Piculet, Bay Woodpecker, Great Iora, Grey-backed Shrike, Sulphur-breasted Warbler, White-tailed Robin and Plain Flowerpecker. After a quick fried rice at the small, park restaurant, in the heat of the day, we decided to visit our pre-booked accommodation. Here however, we discovered from a visiting guest that this evening they'd planned a large noisy party, and he recommended finding other accommodation if we were thinking of sleeping. Without the owner present to talk to, and having found our only major target, we decided to cut our losses and simply to start driving to the next site; Mae Wong. A five hour drive, in the remaining light took us as far as Kamphaeng Phet, where we easily found roadside accommodation.

21 Jan. A further hour or so to Mae Wong, from where we continued to the top at Chong Yen. As a Sunday the campsite was packed, but fortunately no photographers were at attendance at the Grey Peacock-Pheasant stakeout, so having spoken to the ranger we headed straight to the spot. Well, today it was ridiculously easy, with a female Grey Peacock-Pheasant emerging from the forest with 15 seconds of us arriving. Other birds present included White-necked Laughingthrush, Black-throated Laughingthrush, Buff-breasted Babbler and Hill Blue Flycatcher. Having taken a bunch of photos, spent the rest of the morning and early afternoon birding the stretch of road, for several kilometres, downward of Chong Yen.

A nice mix, with Kailij Pheasant, Red-headed Trogon, Great Hornbill, Long-tailed Broadbill, Rosy Minivet, Clicking Shrike-babbler, Maroon Oriole, Common Green Magpie, Olive Bulbul, Sulphur-breasted Warbler, Red-billed Scimitar Babbler and Spot-necked Babbler. Not the hoped-for Burmese Yuhina though, that has not been recorded here for a couple of years now. Back to Khlong Lan where, again following a mix-up over pre-booked accommodation locally, we returned to Kamphaeng Phet.

22 Jan. Having been driving the past couple of days with an engine warning light, a brief stop firstly at the vehicle service centre in Tak. Replacement of the fuel filter solved the issues and by 09:00 back on the road heading westward toward the Burma border. At Mae Salit we checked into about the only reasonable accommodation before heading into Mae Moei. This off-the-beaten track site offers the possibility of finding Rufous-headed Parrotbill, but does require a couple of days of time in the itinerary, hence rarely visited. We started at the usual area for searching for parrotbills, only to discover, in common with many areas of northern Thailand, that the recent bamboo die-off had left large areas now unsuitable for parrotbills. So the remainder of the afternoon spent working other sections on the road through the park searching for suitable habitat. Perseverance paid off with eventually both Pale-billed Parrotbill and Rufous-headed Parrotbill, though only a single bird of each.

23 Jan. A rather noisy night of local festivities. Departed early, to drive north to Mae Ngao. Fog did not lift fully till 10:00, but early birding well rewarded with Black Baza, Rufous-winged Buzzard, White-rumped Falcon, Crested Treeswift, Black-headed Woodpecker, Grey-headed Parakeet, Burmese Nuthatch and Red-billed Blue Magpie. A five hour drive to Doi Inthanon, with the last hour of light around the summit, but nothing of note found.

24 Jan. As often at Inthanon, a start at the summit just after dawn, as the sun rises and warms the trees. Surprisingly warm for January with a temperature of 6°C, rather than the usual sub-zero. Our main target here was Yellow-bellied Flowerpecker, a species erratically seen in this vicinity, but as luck would have it, we managed two birds this morning plus a couple of Yellow-browed Tit. Moving lower, the remainder of the day spent around mid elevations but little of note recorded. Rather quiet for the time of year.

25 Jan. Early morning at the summit again, with good views of Ashy Wood Pigeon, then onto the boardwalk with a close Dark-sided Thrush.

Mid morning we again moved to mid elevations with a couple of surprises in the form of Grey-headed Woodpecker and Sapphire Flycatcher, both rarely found here. Afternoon around Km 34 disappointing, so headed down to lower levels where rewarded with Collared Falconet, Black-headed Woodpecker and Rufous Treepie heard.

26 Jan, A tedious six hour drive to Chiang Saen, lunch on the Mekong, then to the hides at Nam Kham, but only Dusky Warbler present, plus a brief visit by a female Jerdon's Bush Chat. Late afternoon at the lake was interesting, with a Chinese Francolin flying across the road before we'd even arrived. At the lake, Common Shelduck, Ruddy Shelduck, Garganey, Common Pochard, Tufted Duck and Ferruginous Duck in good numbers. Late afternoon we scanned fields, eventually just before dusk, finding at least two Chinese Francolin feeding - the main target here.

27 Jan. Most of the morning spent in fields, scrub and paddies around Chiang Saen. As this habitat changes all the time based on agriculture, clearance and disturbance it's mostly pot luck as to what one finds. This morning was excellent with a great selection of difficult birds such as Paddyfield Warbler, Yellow-breasted Bunting, Black-faced Bunting and Brown-cheeked Rail. Also Temminck's Stint, Eurasian Wryneck, Burmese Shrike, Horsfield's Bush Lark, Sand Martin and Bluethroat. A second visit to the hides pretty much as yesterday, as was a revisit to the lake where few ducks remained. Finished the day with a visit to the harrier roost, with around 300 Pied Harrier, 100 Eastern Marsh Harrier and a couple of Western Marsh Harrier.

28 Jan. Another visit to the hides first, but again poor, as was another scan of the lake. Afternoon return to Chiang Mai. In all, a highly successful trip, finding a much greater percentage of targets than originally expected.
