The BFB were certainly making an impression in Thailand and we soon had the locals turning out to try the greatest pastime/sport/hobby (call it what you will) of them all. Hopefully the 'ladys' above will be joining the Oriental Bird Club asap.
Leaving Hua Hin behind we headed North West and into the mountains adjacent to the Burmese border. After what seemed like ages via some dubious directional road signs (through a new reservoir!) we arrived at what we thought would be are next birding location namely Kaeng Krachan National Park, only to find it closed due to the 'wet' season...bu**er!!!
Fate was at hand though and a quick detour had us pulling up at the delightful birding/photographers guesthouse of Ban Maka http://www.banmaka.com/index.html
