More from Thailand's wetlands and parks

When I finished my notes for the day around Laem Pak Bia and Pak Thale, they were 6 sides long. Of course it abounded with those quality waders mentioned in my previous post, but there was much more 'regular' stuff that isn't actually that regular to us northern Europeans. So here are a few shots: -
Asian Openbills

Little Cormorant

Marsh Sandpiper

Red-wattled Lapwing (race atronuchalis) - note more extensive black nape and just a white cheek surround compared to Middle Eastern birds

Whiskered Tern

Paddyfield Pipit
And a couple of shots from Lumphini Park - it's Bangkok's equivalent to Hyde Park just with a fair bit of outdoor dancing, tai chi and the whole place stopping on the hour for the national anthem. Here are a couple of bits of Thai dross from there: -
Pied Fantail

Oriental Magpie Robin
I'm now in Northern Thailand, all templed out after a couple of days in Chiang Mai. Looking forward to a bit of Doi Inthanon in the morning.
