This year marks our 10th annual Zoothera Birding tour to northern and central Thailand. Once again this tour was fully booked well in advance, all six of the participants existing clients. Each no doubt drawn by the lure of this fascinating country. For Josh and John from Canada this would be their first venture in Asia, while for Sue and Martin they had some degree of Asian birding experience and to complete the tour party both John R and Graham had an even greater accumilation of experience including two prior visits to Thailand, the last five years ago.
This years 17 day tour would follow the same successful itinerery we’ve adopted over previous years. A split programme, whereby we’d first explore the northern regions, birding hillside hotspots around Chiang Mai. Visiting Doi Lang, Doi Ang Khang and Doi Inthanon over a 9 day period. Followed by an internal flight back to Bangkok. Initially birding Khao Yai to the east before heading west, a days wader extravaganza at Pak Thale and concluding with a few days at Kraeng Krachan.
