As the sun rises the BFB are once again up and running but still there's no sign of the Red collared Woodpecker does it really exist?. The primary forest was more alive as we pioneered a new woodcutter's trail. Ace Asia Birding with lots of tantalising glimpses of skulkers as we off-roaded down a ravine. Highlight being a superb male White-tailed Robin and a couple of woodpecker holes......

Downside - chainsaws competing with cicadas in the most 'unwanted noise competition.'

The Sooty Babbler climbing wall stakeout at km.36

A late afternoon ramble round the local paddie fields adds a few ticks to the trip list including a short tailed version of Long-tailed Shrike (Lanius scach scach???) but yet again its a blank day.
