25th-26th November 2009 - Mae Sot

A work trip this week took me to Mae Sot, on the Thai-Burma border.

I had hardly any time free for birding, but a couple of early morning trips to the reservoir on the edge of town produced a THICK-BILLED WARBLER, several YBW, and couple of DUSKY WARBLERS.  The reservoir also played host to a big group of hirundines - BARN, STRIATED and RED-RUMPED  SWALLOWS, and SAND MARTINS. Common resident species included PADDYFIELD PIPIT and a female PIED BUSHCHAT.
