Before leaving Hua Pong in the morning I had a little wander around the immediate vicinity of the village clocking 2 Dark-rumped Swifts, a nice little group of c6 noisy Black-collared Starlings, 2 Japanese White-eye, 3+ Scarlet-backed Flowerpeckers, a mixed flock of White-rumped and Scaly-breasted Munias, Common Iora, Taiga Flycatcher and 2 Stripe-throated Bulbuls.
The hike itself yielded 2 Greater Coucal, several Yellow-browed Warblers, and then in an open area of paddies Pied Stonechat, Siberian Stonechat and Paddyfield Pipit. Best of all though was a soaring Changeable Hawk Eagle which had me checking the field guide carefully!
Once in the village of Kau Ei and I'd recovered a little I went on a very short stroll along the track up to the village in the last hour of daylight and found Radde's Warbler, 2 Common Iora, 3+ Common Tailorbirds, more Yellow-browed Warblers and a really nice male Grey-backed Shrike. The story of a large bright yellow and black bird flushed by a vehicle and giving me only a glimpse is best not mentioned, it may well have been a Sultan Tit but I just didn't get enough on it to claim it.
