OFFICIAL.. Father Christmas goes camping!!!

So..Who says Father Christmas doesn't go camping?? Well a few days at Kaeng Krachan over Christmas  turned up more than just wildlife.. The big man and his reindeer headed west, had his milk and biscuits and dropped off the pressies right on schedule..

With good weather and the fun of Christmas it was good to meet up with Mike Bruce and his father and as always Khun Samarn. The trip itself turned up many birds including the Ratchet Tailed Treepie although I only got a picture of the tail!! Amongst the other highlights were Black Winged Cuckoo Shrike, Flavescent Bulbul, Grey Peacock-Pheasant, Red Headed and Orange Breasted Trogon, Yellow Vented Flowerpecker, Streaked Spiderhunter, White Fronted Scops Owl and my favourite...Hoopoe!! Oh and an all too common sighting of a pair of leopards!!
