Bird List from Khao Lak and Laem Pakarang

Khao Lak is visited by large numbers of tourists but few birdwatchers, However, there are some birdwatching opportunities in the area, not least, the nearby Laem Pakarang, an area of beach, mudflats, coastal scrub, secondary growth, plantations and pools approximately 9 km north of Khao Lak.

Having received an impressive list of species seen on a holiday to the area in February 2007, it would appear that Khao Lak and Laem Pakarang are a good choice for birdwatchers holidaying in southern Thailand with non birding partners, family and/or friends.

Indeed, the list contains such variety and quality of species that the area deserves more attention from both visitng and resident birdwatchers alike. I have reproduced the list here, in full, courtesy of Richard.

See the page on Laem Pakarang for more information.
