Early yesterday morning I managed to snatch a couple of hours birding around Cha-am, alone and away from three bickering under 11's, I headed north, along a more or less deserted beach, two Common Sandpipers fed along the waters edge and at the north end of town, at a small estuary a high tide roost held 60 Lesser Sandplovers, 28 Brown-headed Gulls, 11 Whiskered Tern, nine Common Terns and a Little Tern. Away from the beach I wandered around an area of scrub, at least seven Hoopoes were present, along with a very confiding Barred Buttonquail. Also noted during the morning were good numbers of Green Bee-eaters, a single Blue-tailed Bee-eater, a few Yellow-vented Bulbuls, Thick-billed Warblers, Brown Shrike, Green-billed Malkoha and a Wryneck.
