Lampakbia, Petburi

5th of January

Bengt Legnell, another oldtime friend from Sweden had arrived a few days earlier. He was waiting for a team of Swedes he’d guide around mid January so I thought I’d like to take him out to brush up on some of the local birds.
We decided for a day at Lampakbia. This truly is a great area where one can be watching birds uninterrupted and continually. Higlight was the Greenshanks again but we failed to find any Spoon-billed SP normally seen in the area.
In the late afternoon we searched hard for this bird at Khok Kham but dipped again.
