Thailand – Forktails, Flycatchers & Spoon-billed Sandpiper

An intensive 18-day birding small group tour to Northern & Central Thailand in conjunction with our friends from Oriole Birding.


Thailand has long been a destination coveted by birders, and this itinerary has it all to offer! Upon arrival in Bangkok, we will head north to Chang Mai and straight into the mountains to find flocks of colourful species, as well as taking in some fantastic views over the Thai-Myanmar border and visiting some hill tribe communities as we search for birds. This border region contains a wide variety of fabulous birds and mountain habitats including forest and farmland. As well as some real speciality species, our visit to the north will also allow us to find a variety of flycatchers, laughingthrushes, woodpeckers, bulbuls, babblers, game birds and wintering leaf warblers.

To compliment the northern part of the tour, we will also spend time on the Gulf of Thailand for a whole host of shorebirds including some exceptionally rare species (not least the chance of Spoon-billed Sandpiper) and the beautiful pristine jungle around Kaeng Krachan where we can expect some superb birding to include various broadbills, trogons, raptors, woodpeckers, hornbills and possibly pittas, among others, and there is a chance of big mammals too.

We work together with local guides, Nick Upton for North Thailand and Games for Central Thailand, and you can expect to see around 400-450 species.
