This autumn the Thai Raptor Group are holding two
raptor watch activities to observe the southerly migration of raptors
as they come through the Isthmus of Kra bottleneck:
Municipal Adminitration, Chumporn Province and Thai Raptor Group
(TRG) are the joint co-ordinators of the 2006 Thailand Raptor
Watch Festival, to be held on the weekend of September 30 - October
1 in Chumporn Province, southern Thailand. The count will continue
throughout the whole of October led by the principal counter,
Mr. Chukiart Nualsri. Birders who are interested in the raptor
watch at the Chumporn site are encouraged to join and may contact
Mr. Chukiart at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Weekend Hawkwatch at Radar Hill, Prachuab Kirikhun Province, will
be a weekly raptor watch and count which will take place on the
weekends from September 23 to October 31, except on the weekend
of Raptor Watch Festival; the weekend hawkwatch will be organized
for October 2-3 that week so that the two events do not clash.
