Khao Yoi

Khao Yoi and the Rice Fields

A trip out this morning took us to Khao Yoi and the surrounding rice fields.. A nice clear drive down at 6am took not long over an hour.  Fist point around Khao Yoi  didn't produce much until we ventured further over the railway line.. Scores of Black Kites circling and hunting low over the ponds.. A truly fantastic sight!!!
Four or five Spot Billed Pelicans made for some nice shots, too. Grey and Purple Herons made some nice low flights over us. snap snap... Not to many Kingfishers about but I did get one shot of a Black Capped which I think is my sharpest to date....

We followed the roads around to Wat Khao Takrao which as you get close to the temple are really flooded now (6-8"). We took the pond road and worked our way back to Rama2. Not too much around sadly. A few more herons and kingfishers. A Blue Tailed Bee-Eater and a Painted Stork completed my pics for the day.. A nice trip out...
