An 11 day trip from Kaeng Krachan to the central peninsula – Jan/Feb 2016

 

Tom & Colby where a father and son team. Both keen birders at home they had been given leave by their wives to spend some quality time together exploring Thailand. The remit was to include some less often birded places and show them as much wildlife as possible. This is not a day by day report but lists of locations visited and animals seen together with some photos from the trip.
