Wader Heaven & more Rarities

Petchaburi Province is home to the famous overwintering Spoon-billed Sandpipers at Pak Thale and we managed to find one within 2 minutes of our arrival, unlike the 2 hours it took on our previous visit a few weeks ago. Instead of blabbing on about our day, suffice it to say we saw all the same birds as before which I wrote about on this blog, and instead will leave you with a few photos from our day…. 

Asiatic Dowitchers

Long-toed Stint is quite common

Lesser Sandplover is very common

Curlew Sandpiper

Broad-billed Sandpiper

Spot the Nordmann's Greenshanks….?

Chinese Egret and Eastern Great Egret.

Oh but we did find a Grey-tailed Tattler which was new for the tour, along with a Black-tailed Gull, Plaintive Cuckoo, White-shouldered Starling and we also saw the first Bay-backed Shrike for Thailand….

Bay-backed Shrike - 1st record for Thailand
