Welcome to Birdquest
Sunday 8th February - Thursday 19th February 2015
This new and relatively short tour, focusing on the extensive wetlands of the Gulf of Thailand, forested Khao Yai National Park in North-East Thailand, the amazing Angkor Wat, large waterbird colonies and grasslands of the Tonle Sap flood-plain, and dry-wooded northern plains of Cambodia, delivered a huge range of impressive flagship South-East Asian birds. Our foremost highlights included Silver Pheasant, Siamese Fireback, Milky and Black-necked Storks, Greater Adjutant, White-shouldered Ibis, Giant Ibis, Chinese Egret, Black-faced Spoonbill, Sarus Crane, Bengal Florican, White-faced and Malaysian Plovers, Asian Dowitcher, Nordmann's Greenshank, Spoon-billed Sandpiper, Pied Harrier, White-rumped Falcon, Pale-capped Pigeon, Spotted Wood Owl, Blue Pitta, Manchurian Reed Warbler, Limestone Wren-Babbler, and Asian Golden Weaver. Although seen by Craig, a very vocal Coral-billed Ground Cuckoo managed to give the rest of us the slip on this occasion!
