Mae Wong

Traveled to Mae Wong National Park on Sunday afternoon and even though our arrival was rather late in the day, the quality of wildlife encounters was high with male Kalij Pheasant displaying to his mate on the road!  Once settled in to our (rather basic, but perfectly comfortable) accommodation at Chong Yen campsite we were treated to excellent views of a Leopard Cat and Large Indian Civet that the park rangers feed each evening, with a backdrop of an amazing starlit night and the distant calls of Mountain Scops Owls.

We did some spotlighting along the road later on, which produced a single Slow Loris.
