On our final morning last Thursday and with a couple of hour spare before breakfast we had a look around some scrub and a small lake near our resort at Cha-am. At least a dozen Chestnut Munia were present along with plenty of Black-browed Reed and Oriental Reed Warbler, Indochinese Bushlark, several Purple Gallinule, 2 Purple Heron, an Oriental Pratincole, 20 Red-rumped Swallow, Hoopoe and a few Wood and Marsh Sandpiper.
After breakfast on the way back to Bangkok we stopped of at Nong Pla Lai where best raptors were a pale morph Booted Eagle, a Greater Spotted Eagle, 6 Black Kite, 15 Oriental Pratincole and a few Blue-tailed Bee-eaters.
