Mae Wong - Tuesday 20th March

Our final morning at Mae Wong saw us birding along the Umphang trail again, and produced a good selection of forest birds including three Spot-necked Babblers and two Coral-billed Scimitar Babblers, along with a female Small Niltava and a male White-tailed Robin.

The feeding station in the campsite gave us excellent views of Buff-breasted Babbler, Blue Whistling-thrush and Silver-eared Mesia.

In the afternoon we drove to Mae Sot in Tak province, stopping at Thaksin Maharat National Park on the way.  This gave us a few new species to the trip list, including White-throated Bulbul and Grey Treepie, plus rather poor views of an Iola bulbul (possibly Olive).
