Far Southern Thailand: 12 May - 2 Jun 2015






12 May - 2 Jun 2015
Hot and humid with quite some rain.
Krabi Mangroves, Khao Nor Chuchi (Khao Phra Bang Khram Wildlife Sanctuary), Tiger Cave Temple, Phang-nga Mangroves, Thai Mueang, Sri Phang-nga National Park, Krung Ching (Khao Luang National Park), Khlong Saeng Wildlife Sanctuary, Trang Botanical Garden, Yaring Mangrove Forest, Khao Banthat Wildlife Sanctuary, Hala-Bala Wildlife Sanctuary, Chaloem Phrakiat Wildlife Sanctuary and Pha Phru Sirinthon.

With Fred van Gessel, Charlie Andrews and, in part, Ian Dugdale and Games Punjapa Phetsri. Although both Fred and Charlie had visited Thailand several times previously, this was their first trip to the far south. As well as southern specialities, a principal aim was to make sound recordings. As such, several localities were chosen for their more promising peace and tranquility, given that Thailand and Asia are hardly renowned as quiet destinations.

11 May. Flew from Chiang Mai to Krabi direct with Air Asia, arriving on schedule at 18:35. Met Charlie and Fred at the airport, whom having arrived three days earlier had been engaged in extreme comfort birding from the balcony of their luxury accommodation on Aonang Beach. Incredibly, we managed to get lost driving from the airport to Aonang, although admittedly it was dark. Overnight at the beach enjoying a few beers in the pleasant evening weather, there having been no rain for a couple of days.

12 May. Initial morning birding plans were thwarted by discovering Fred had left his critical medication in the fridge back in Australia, so spent the morning visiting the only international hospital in Krabi to secure supplies. This achieved, a quick lunch in town then out to the Krabi Mangrove Walkway where, in the heat of the day, we found little other than some fairly aggressive Long-tailed Macaques and a vocal Mangrove Pitta. Met our boatman, Diew, at 14:00 and headed upriver in search of mangrove specialities. Unfortunately, 10 minutes into the trip the skies opened and we had to shelter 45 minutes from rain. However, with cooling temperatures things improved markedly and over the next three hours we found Ruddy Kingfisher, Brown-winged Kingfisher, Indian Pond Heron, Spotted Wood Owl, Greater Flameback, Black-and-red Broadbill and heard half a dozen Mangrove Pitta. Left Krabi at 18:00, driving through heavy showers to Khao Nor Chuchi.

13 May. Awoken by several calling Blue-winged Pitta - one of the few species that tolerates the ever-expanding rubber and oil palm plantations of southern Thailand. After breakfast we headed out along dirt roads that run through the remaining forest fragments, walking one of the longer side tracks.

As always here rather slow going, though we racked up a few interesting species including Puff-backed Bulbul, Chestnut-winged Babbler, Great Iora, Cream-vented Bulbul, Grey-cheeked Bulbul and Yellow-breasted Flowerpecker. Next up, we returned to Krabi to visit Tiger Cave Temple, that was interesting, but hard work, in the heat of the day, with species of note being Banded Broadbill and Red-throated Barbet. A mid afternoon return to Krabi Mangrove Walkway where we again tried for Mangrove Pitta, but again only heard it, though a major bonus was a Von Schrenck's Bittern on the way out, feeding amoung the mangrove roots. Return to Khao Nor Chuchi.

14 May. Heavy overnight rain. A second morning at Khao Nor Chuchi, with us starting a little farther away and walking downhill through a mixture of palm oil plantation and forest.

A better morning, probably due to the overnight rain, as cooler and clearer. Three hours birding, seeing Changeable Hawk-Eagle, Chestnut-breasted Malkoha, Violet Cuckoo, Whiskered Treeswift, Silver-rumped Spinetail, Banded Kingfisher, Buff-rumped Woodpecker, Green Broadbill, Black-and-yellow Broadbill, Great Iora, Blyth's Paradise Flycatcher and Lesser Green Leafbird. A late morning drive to Phang-nga mangroves which produced Copper-throated Sunbird, Mangrove Whistler, Ruddy Kingfisher, Mangrove Pitta and a single Oriental White-eye. On our drive out we stumbled upon a breeding pair of Jungle Myna. Overnight just outside Phang-nga.

15 May. A pre breakfast visit to Phang-nga mangroves, where we hoped the early hour would be beneficial for Mangrove Pitta. Indeed this proved successful with two birds seen. We then immediately moved on to Ao Phang-nga which proved equally good, with Mangrove Pitta, Brown-winged Kingfisher, Ruddy Kingfisher, White-chested Babbler and Streak-breasted Woodpecker. Flushed with success we returned to our accommodation, had a late breakfast and, on leaving, lucked onto a very cooperative Blue-winged Pitta. Headed off toward Sri Phang-nga National Park, dropping in at Thai Muang, but exceptionally dry here, and other than a couple of bitterns, little seen. Eventually arrived at Sri Phang-nga late afternoon, and spent the remaining hour or so around Cha-lee ranger station. This proved productive, with Little Bronze Cuckoo, Hooded Pitta, Violet Cuckoo, Red-bearded Bee-eater, Rufous Woodpecker and Raffles's Malkoha. Overnight locally outside the park.

16 May. Into Sri Phang-nga shortly after 06:00 and walked the main track to the waterfall. surprisingly pretty quiet, though a group of Bushy-crested Hornbill flying over were a highlight. The rest of the morning and early afternoon along the two short trails from the car park, with Rufous-collared Kingfisher, Chestnut-naped Forktail and Black-capped Babbler.

Mid afternoon we scouted an area outside the park that turned up a couple of Watercock, but heavy rain started around 15:00 so returned to the accommodation. After 16:00 the rain stopped, so we backtracked to the park. However, we were refused entry, having arrived after the official closing time of 16:30, so had to make do with birding the entrance road. This proved to be not a total failure as we found Tiger Shrike - a scarce migrant.

17 May. A slightly earlier start to arrive at Cha-lee ranger station around 06:30. A short morning was quite productive, producing Red-billed Malkoha, Black-bellied Malkoha, Orange-breasted Trogon,

Green Broadbill, Hooded Pitta, Blue-winged Pitta, Chestnut-winged Babbler, Yellow-vented Flowerpecker, Purple-naped Sunbird and Van Hasselt's Sunbird. Afternoon drive to Krung Ching, with torrential rain from 16:30 until past our arrival.

18 May. The first hour we spent in the open areas along the entrance road, followed by a short time around the HQ and campsite. The remainder of the day along the waterfall trail, walking as far as the falls - 3.7 kilometres. Returned to the car park around 17:00 just in time to catch the first afternoon thunderstorm. A good day with several excellent species; Violet Cuckoo, Scarlet-rumped Trogon, Orange-breasted Trogon, Banded Kingfisher, Red-bearded Bee-eater, White-crowned Hornbill, Buff-necked Woodpecker, Malayan Banded Pitta, Rufous-winged Philentoma, Maroon-breasted Philentoma, Green Iora, Great Iora, Streaked Bulbul, Black-throated Babbler, Chestnut-winged Babbler, Black-capped Babbler, Brown-streaked Flycatcher, Crimson Sunbird and a Yellow-eared Spiderhunter.

19 May. As yesterday we'd mainly concentrated on the forest interior, we allocated our morning to the entrance road with its more open habitat and forest edge. As expected, a number of different species seen, including Rufous-tailed Tailorbird, Crested Goshawk, Chestnut-breasted Malkoha, Black-bellied Malkoha, Blue-eared Kingfisher, Large Woodshrike, Lesser Cuckooshrike, Fiery Minivet and Grey-headed Babbler. After lunch and a siesta, again returned to the same area but, despite no rain, rather quiet.

20 May. After a brief early session at the bus stop lookout we spent another full day on the waterfall trail, walking as far as the third shelter. Hot and sunny all day, with a good number of different species encountered from our previous visit two days ago. Best bird of the day was a undoubtedly a Scaly-breasted Bulbul in trees at the campsite. Along the trail we found Violet Cuckoo, Scarlet-rumped Trogon, Banded Kingfisher, Sooty Barbet, Rufous Woodpecker, Buff-necked Woodpecker, Malayan Banded Pitta, Large Woodshrike, Yellow-bellied Bulbul, Streaked Bulbul, Hairy-backed Bulbul, Fluffy-backed Tit-Babbler, Ferruginous Babbler, Brown Fulvetta, Rufous-crowned Babbler, Fulvous-chested Jungle Flycatcher, Chestnut-naped Forktail and Crimson Sunbird. On return to our accommodation we discovered power had been out for quite a while, so no shower that we'd been looking forward to after a sweaty day in the field.

21 May. A short morning along the entrance road added a couple of species to our growing list - namely Blyth's Hawk-Eagle and Black-thighed Falconet. Another interesting species was again Scaly-breasted Bulbul plus Grey-headed Babbler, and we finally obtained good views of Golden-whiskered Barbet. Left Krung Ching at 12:00, and were an hour down the road when the accommodation called to say someone, who will remain nameless, had left an e-reader in the room, so had to return to collect it. Finally arrived at Ao Nang Beach late afternoon. Dinner in town. A dry but hot and humid day.

22 May. Left Aonang at 08:00 to meet up with Ian and Games at Krabi Airport. A two hour drive through the usual sea of oil palm and rubber plantations, to Phanom at the edge of Ratchaprapha Dam, from where we took our pre-arranged boat across the lake to Khlong Saeng for a three night stay. A very wet crossing on the boat with driving rain and choppy waters for the first half of the journey. Late afternoon the weather was far more settled and a potter around the far corner of the lake gave us great views of Helmeted Hornbill and Great Hornbill. Other species encountered included Blue-eared Kingfisher, Chestnut-breasted Malkoha, Red-bearded Bee-eater and Wreathed Hornbill. Shortly after dusk further rain showers put the dampener on any night boat trip.

23 May. Early on we took the boat to the cave trails in the south-western corner of the lake. En route encountered Oriental Hobby, Western Osprey and Lesser Fish Eagle. Mainly bamboo forest along this trail, but a reasonable selection of species included Hooded Pitta, Malayan Banded Pitta, Bamboo Woodpecker and Rufous-collared Kingfisher all heard only as well as Blue-eared Kingfisher seen. Afternoon at the northern end of the lake with Helmeted Hornbill, Great Hornbill and Bamboo Woodpecker, plus a group of four Gaur. After dinner a night trip found Buffy Fish Owl, Sambar and Common Palm Civet.

24 May. A dull and overcast day with the threat of rain even at daybreak that didn't disappoint. Several hours spent in a slow cruise to the northern part of the lake, with several raptors en route such as Black-thighed Falconet, Bat Hawk, Oriental Hobby and Blyth's Hawk-Eagle as well as a couple of Stork-billed Kingfisher. In the late morning and most of the afternoon we hiked in forest and along one of the the many tributaries, but other than rain, that started at 13:30, not much. A hard walk back to the boat through showers and leech infested trails with a tough open boat ride back to the accommodation through torrential rain.

We did however, find a group of six Gaur. Feeling cold and very wet, it was refreshing to jump in the lake for a swim - the water feeling like a warm bath. Other species recorded during the day were Chestnut-breasted Malkoha, Raffles's Malkoha, Bushy-crested Hornbill, Cook's Swift, Blue-banded Kingfisher, Red-bearded Bee-eater, Bamboo Woodpecker and a Hooded Pitta heard.

25 May. Dry all night but rain, starting at 05:00, delayed our planned early excursion on the lake till after 07:00, during which we found Oriental Hobby and White-browed Scimitar Babbler, the later species decidedly rare in the south. Returned to the accommodation, packed and took the boat back to the pier, managing to stay dry en route. A four hour drive to Trang Botanical Garden, where a short, late afternoon walk found Blyth's Paradise Flycatcher and a vocal Red-crowned Barbet. A late arrival at roadside accommodation near Khao Banthat.

26 May. All day birding at Khao Banthat. Although the day started out grey and ominous, the weather thankfully remained dry, giving us good birding weather and a great selection of species through the day - Chestnut-breasted Malkoha, Violet Cuckoo, Diard's Trogon, Scarlet-rumped Trogon, Rufous-collared Kingfisher, Blue-banded Kingfisher, Banded Kingfisher, Yellow-crowned Barbet, Sooty Barbet, Maroon Woodpecker, Green Broadbill, Banded Broadbill, Malayan Banded Pitta, Blue-winged Pitta, Lesser Cuckooshrike, Sultan Tit, Cinereous Bulbul, Grey-headed Babbler, Short-tailed Babbler, Scaly-crowned Babbler, Red-throated Sunbird and Purple-naped Sunbird. It was notable that despite the list of birds, no White-rumped Shama seen or heard, other than the large numbers in cages in the villages. Evidence that trapping must be rife inside the park.

27 May. A later start today, at 06:30, when we drove to Yaring Mangrove Forest, arriving late morning. Mangrove Flycatcher heard, Mangrove Whistler, Olive-winged Bulbul and Ashy Tailorbird. Continued to Hala-Bala stopping en route to stock up for our time there. In the last hour of the day, during showers, we managed Blyth's Hawk-Eagle, Whiskered Treeswift, Rhinoceros Hornbill, Buff-rumped Woodpecker, Crested Jay, Brown Fulvetta, Javan Myna and Pale Blue Flycatcher.

28 May. Figuring that rain would be a certainly for mid afternoon we waded over the river and onto the leech trail early morning. The water level in the river was a tad higher than usual, though not a major issue. From 06:45 to 14:30 we birded the trail, encountering an armada of leeches, but an excellent selection of birds; Great Argus heard, Short-toed Coucal, Diard's Trogon, Rufous-collared Kingfisher, Rufous-backed Dwarf Kingfisher, Malaysian Honeyguide, Checker-throated Woodpecker, Olive-backed Woodpecker, Black-and-red Broadbill, Grey-bellied Bulbul, Chestnut-rumped Babbler, White-necked Babbler, Large Wren-Babbler and Ferruginous Babbler. Our timely exit from the forest coincided with the start of rain for the rest of the afternoon and into the evening, ruling out any night birding.

29 May. Another beautiful morning, the early part of which we spent around the HQ with us finding Orange-backed Woodpecker and Crimson-winged Woodpecker. Then out to bird the upper sections along the road, with Grey-breasted Jungle Flycatcher, Silver-breasted Broadbill, Bushy-crested Hornbill, White-crowned Hornbill, Checker-throated Woodpecker, Maroon-breasted Philentoma, Sultan Tit, Scaly-breasted Bulbul, Finsch's Bulbul, Buff-vented Bulbul, Hairy-backed Bulbul and Rufous-tailed Tailorbird. As after lunch, it was surprisingly still not raining we birded the short trail along the river. Good for butterflies and a flyover Blue-crowned Hanging Parrot. Late afternoon a return to the upper sections of the road where we had Chestnut-backed Scimitar Babbler and White-crowned Hornbill, in addition to avoiding rain till 17:30.

30 May. Decided to bird lower elevations in the expectations of different species. Started at the HQ and by midday we had accrued Mountain Imperial Pigeon, Chestnut-breasted Malkoha, Rusty-breasted Cuckoo, Wreathed Hornbill, Blue-crowned Hanging Parrot, Sultan Tit, Fluffy-backed Tit-Babbler, Everett's White-eye, Chestnut-naped Forktail, Greater Green Leafbird, Yellow-breasted Flowerpecker, Long-billed Spiderhunter, Yellow-eared Spiderhunter and a single Temminck's Sunbird. Packed and left for Sungai Kolok where we checked into the Grand Garden Hotel in the centre of town. Nothing at all grand about this basic hotel, but apparently the best in town, and badly in need of knocking down and rebuilding. Late afternoon we met up with an old ranger friend and had a quick visit to Chaloem Phrakiat Wildlife Sanctuary, where a short walk was very productive with Van Hasselt's Sunbird, Blue-crowned Hanging Parrot, Blue-throated Bee-eater and Banded Woodpecker. A noisy night due to street noise and parties.

31 May. With a last morning for Fred and Charlie we visited Pha Phru Sirinthon. As the station is currently closed for repairs to boardwalks, we birded the road running past the entrance. In excellent weather and early morning light we had Black-bellied Malkoha, Malaysian Blue Flycatcher, Black-and-red Broadbill, Green Iora and Fluffy-backed Tit-Babbler. Dropped off Fred and Charlie at Narathiwat Airport and headed back to Hala-Bala where the rest of the afternoon spent mostly watching the falling rain, plus a group of Dusky Broadbill that was a good addition to the list. We'd earmarked the remaining two days to research some less accessible areas away from trails, so spent some time with Google Earth trying to identify likely areas of productive forest.

1 Jun. A pre-dawn chorus included Brown Hawk-Owl and Blyth's Frogmouth. We started the day with a minor logistical problem in the form of a flat tyre, though having replaced it, we set off across the river as usual.

Higher water levels again due to yesterday's downpour. Today's plan was to try some previously unexplored side trails in the hope that they passed through good habitat and might provide some highly sought after birds. Having started on the usual leech trail we headed uphill and followed what appeared to be an old researcher's trail onto a ridge and down the other side. Our plan to return via an easy loop proved impossible, and after a kilometre and a half the trail simply died, heading in the direction of the east side of the park. Thus we resorted to ploughing through secondary growth and forest edge with a machete and GPS to eventually exit the sanctuary on the east side. This left us with a fair walk back to the HQ along the road. We certainly met our aim of trying out a new area, but nothing really different discovered. The morning's bird list included Grey-headed Fish Eagle, Dusky Broadbill, Malaysian Hawk-Cuckoo, Indian Cuckoo, Bushy-crested Hornbill, Blue-banded Kingfisher, Orange-breasted Trogon, Streaked Bulbul and Malaysian Honeyguide.

Pretty exhausted, we returned to camp for a welcome cold shower. On past performance we'd fully expected a wet afternoon, but the weather remained stoutly dry so around 16:30 headed up the hill for some late afternoon birding. Despite excellent weather rather subdued, though Grey-chested Flycatcher was a highlight.

2 Jun. Our last day in the field and once again back over the river and exploration of old trails using GPS. Investigated an area toward the Malaysia border, but found the walking difficult with many rattans to deal with. An excellent find was the shy and elusive Rufous-tailed Shama. Even away from trails in seemingly remote areas there are clear signs of locals cutting and collecting in the sanctuary. Our best day for leeches to date with us looking like a bloodfest by the end of it. Useful exploration with an interesting bird list including Black-thighed Falconet, Rufous-winged Philentoma, Rufous-bellied Eagle, Grey-chested Jungle Flycatcher, Rufous-chested Flycatcher, Olive-backed Woodpecker, Large Wren-Babbler, Rail-babbler heard, Rufous-backed Dwarf Kingfisher, Blue-banded Kingfisher and Chestnut-rumped Babbler. Late afternoon thunder and lightening with a small amount of rain. Reddish Scops Owl heard late evening.

3 Jun. All day travel with return to Chiang Mai.
