Kaeng Krachan (the first weekend)The first trip to KK since re opening this year turned up a few nice sightings for me.. It did seem a bit quiet on the bird front, but we still saw quite a few. A nice little group of Chestnut Headed Bee-Eaters taking a dip in the stream at Bang Kran. Plenty of Red Throated Flycatchers around the camping area, a lonesome Verditer Flycatcher, a pair of Blue Bearded Bee-Eaters, Crimson Sunbirds, a pair of Violet Cuckoos, plenty of Blue Winged Leafbirds and a few Fairy Bluebirds.

Sunday morning. We had thought of taking the drive up to Panoen Tung, but after making a coffee and watching 82 trucks pass by from 6-7am we kinda decided against it... This was our first and last weekend trip !!! Each pick up had about 6-8 people in the back.. Must have been one hell of a party up there.. Driving back throught the fields of Petchaburi turned up a huge Black Eagle which sort of rounded off another nice trip..
Thanks to Lenny W down in Pattaya for the help in identifying some of the above....
