Pak Thale - 25th October

The long drive back to Bangkok from Chumphon was broken up with a few hours birding aroun d Laem Pak Bia and Pak Thale.

Highlights included excellent views of a female Greater Painted Snipe at the Kings Project, a juvenile Little Stint, a flock of 44 Grey-headed Lapwings at Wat Komnaram and a juv Heuglin's Gull at Pak Thale.  I spent a good amount of time trying to Find the recently arrived Spoon-billed Sandpiper but without success.  Instead I had to settle for a huge group of Great Knot dropping in shortly before sunset, at very close range.
