Petchaburi Birding Trip – Thailand Birding

Just yesterday I finished a nice trip which lasted for 8 days of birding in Petchaburi province with a group of birders from Wales.

“Wasteland” as a Bird Habitat – Thailand Birding

On a recent bird photography trip in Petchaburi province myself and Colin Rogers spent some time photographing a number of common species in a quite ugly scrap of “wasteland”. At first glance the area looks of little value with scrubby invasive bushes, piles of illegally dumped rubbish, murky pools of water and rutted tracks – [...]

Bird Persecution Using Mist Nets: Thailand Birding

A couple of days ago on 20th May I was birding in the rice fields near Petchaburi, enjoying the spectacle of Weavers nesting. Baya Weaver colonies seem to be in every small tree, their complicated nests apparently in a constant state of construction, and plenty of small colonies of Asian Golden Weaver are in beds [...]
