Weekly round up

It has been another busy week, Chinese Year last week took up a lot of time, with loads of eating, family stuff, temples and dishing out money in little red envelops. We also had to go into Bangkok to pick up the wifes passport and her new UK visa, followed by planning for a month long birding trip beginning tomorrow. I did get out onto the patch Sunday morning, there was little change in the birds present, with the 19 Glossy Ibis still around and amongst the usual waders 25 Oriental Pratincoles, 10 Grey-headed Lapwing and 5 Spotted Redshank. Also present were several Siberian Rubythroat, male Eastern Marsh Harrier, 120 Baya and 30 Golden Weaver

Yesterday we headed up to Chiang Mai to collect a vehicle for the next month, birds noted on the way included 2 Pied Kingfisher feeding next to the main road at Nakhon Sawan and a Black-eared Kite near Tak. This morning I found time for a walk around scrub and fields near Lampang, best birds 23 Grey-headed Lapwing, two Barred Buttonquail, 4 Racket-tailed Treepie, Thick-billed Warbler and 3 Siberian Rubythroat

From tomorrow I will be joined by friends Fred and Marian Rowe from Norfolk, UK we will spend a solid month birding, starting on the coast at Petchaburi, then Keang Karchan National Park, Beung Bhoraphet, Mae Wong NP, Mae Ping NP, Doi Inthanon NP, Chiang Dao, Doi Lang and finsihing at Chiang Saen. I will try to keep the blog updated as much as possible during the trip, internet acsess permitting.
