Sanderlings Feeding & Rhynchokinesis – Thailand Birding

A few days ago I visited Pranburi Forest Park in Prachuab Kiri Khan province for a few hours in the afternoon. There was not a lot to be seen in the mangroves and the coastal woodland, just a single Forest Wagtail, some Malaysian Pied Fantails, an Indian Roller and a few Golden-bellied Gerygones.

More Photos from Laem Pak Bia – Thailand Birding

Yesterday, for a second day, I found myself with time alone to visit Laem Pak Bia and Pak Thale. Shorebird numbers were very low compared to a few weeks ago so it appears that most birds have already left for their breeding grounds.

The water level is extremely low, exposing large areas of grassland habitat which is used by lots of Paddyfield Pipits and Oriental Skylarks; in fact I am not sure there is a better place to [...]

Birding at Laem Pak Bia & Pak Thale: Thailand Birding

The twin sites of Laem Pak Bia and Pak Thale on the Gulf of Thailand are well-known for being a great place for watching shorebirds. It has been suggested by an increasing number of birders that it may, in fact, be the best shorebird site in the world. Indeed it is hard to think of [...]
