Temples & Birds - Thailand and Cambodia

Friday 23 November – Saturday 08 December 2020

Birdwatching and photography in Thailand and Cambodia is a fantastic experience. From critically endangered birds such as Spoon-billed Sandpiper to common spectacular raptors such as Crested Serpent Eagle there are always great birds close by. This trip aims to cover four areas in two countries developing a rich experience taking in jungles, wetlands and the world famous Angkor Wat.

The trip starts on the coast in the gulf of Thailand amongst the wading birds of Laem Pak Bia. If you love waders this is one of the best places in the world! Great Knot, Nordman’s Greenshank, Red-necked Stint, Long-toed Stint, alongside big numbers of Curlew Sandpipers, Broad-billed Sandpipers and the endangered Spoon-billed Sandpiper winter here every year. 

Kaeng Krachan. Covering almost 3,000km² this is one of the best places in Thailand for wildlife, from the spectacular rivers and waterfalls to the highest forested mountain tops. Over 420 species of birds have been seen here as well as 57 mammals and 300 butterfly species.  Birds include ratchet tailed treepie, white-fronted scops owl, Black Baza and the magnificent grey-headed fish eagle

In Cambodia we start with the world famous Angkor Wat with Angkor Bayon and Ta Phrom. This huge site covers almost 420km² and was home to the Khmer Empire, from the 9th to the 15th century. Nearby Prek Toal Bird Sanctuary is a sanctuary on the shore of a flooded forest and one of the most important sites in the whole of S.E Asia for wetland birds. Greater and Lesser Adjuncts, Open-billed Storks, Black-headed Ibis, Spot-billed Pelican.
