Rocking around Khao Yai

I've been attending a meeting at a resort just outside Khao Yai National Park for the last three days.  Free time for birding was very limited, but a pre-breakfast walk rewarded me with nice views of several Olive-backed Pipits and a couple of Thick-billed Warblers, Red-rumped Swallow, Pied Bush Chat and Siberian Stonechat. The resort grounds held Spotted and Asian Barred Owlets plus Barn Owl.

Our meeting finished ahead of time today so I drove back to Bangkok taking the road through the National Park, stopping near the HQ to see if the regular wintering male White-throated Rock Thrush was around.  In fact it was showing as soon as I arrived (there was another birder scoping it) and it gave cracking views for half an hour or so.
