Thailand, Spoon-billed Sandpipers, Big Cats and Giant Nuthatches.
Written by Jos   

Having never visited south-east Asia before, finally the lure of Spoon-billed Sandpipers tempted me to take my first exploratory wanders in the region. Selecting an itinerary that covered both north and south Thailand, the trip not only focussed on the iconic Spoon-billed Sandpipers and associated feast of waders, but also included the fabulous Kaeng Krachen National Park and an extended loop through northern Thailand, the latter the wintering grounds of a mouth-watering selection of gems such as Siberian Rubythroat and Himalayan Bluetail, as well as resident jaw-droppers such as Giant Nuthatch, Red-faced Liocichla and Himalayan Cutia. Utilizing domestic flights, I also visited the coast of the Andaman Sea for a few days of White-bellied Sea Eagles, Brown-winged Kingfishers, flowerpecker bonanzas and a dizzing array of swiftlets.

Big cats, white owls, sunny tropics. December 2014.
Written by Jos   

European Lynx, Snowy Owl and a bunch of goodies at the Labanoras feeders, White-backed and Grey-headed Woodpeckers amongst them, not a bad way to begin December! And from there, off to Thailand for near on a month of birding travels.

Ringing the Month. November 2014.
Written by Jos   

White-backed Woodpecker

 

Nutcrackers teasing, woodpeckers at the feeders. Summer long gone, fields and meadows near devoid of birds, it is the start of my winter ringing season at the feeders ... quite a good start - White-backed and Middle Spotted Woodpeckers amongst the initial haul, Nutcrackers and Black Woodpeckers in the immediate neighbourhood.

Elsewhere, Black-throated Divers and seaducks the best of the rest.
