Spoon-billed Sandpiper @ Lame Pak Bia
Phetchaburi is one of the central provinces (changwat) of Thailand. Neighboring provinces are (from north clockwise) Ratchaburi, Samut Songkhram and Prachuap Khiri Khan. In the west it borders Tanintharyi Division of Myanmar. Geography Phetchaburi is located at the northern end of the Malay Peninsula, with the Gulf of Thailand to the East and the Tanaosi mountain range forming the boundary to Myanmar. Except these border mountains most of the province is a flat plain area. With an area of about 3000 km² the Kaeng Krachan National Park is Thailands largest national park, covering nearly half of the province. It protects mostly rainforests in the mountains along the boundary to Myanmar, but also the Kaeng Krachan reservoir is part of the park. The only significant river of the province is the Phetchaburi River. Here is the place of Wild Bird Farm we bring our client to relax after lunch time
Bann Pak Thale the name of Sub-District, is a large area of salt pans with some mangrove remnants and a sand spit, in Phetchaburi province. This is probably the premier birdwatching site for shorebirds in Thailand with many rare species putting in regular appearances. The appropriate time to watch birds is winter, during November – March. You can see rare birds Spoon-billed Sandpiper, Nordmann’s Greenshank, Asian Dowitcher in same area. This region is very open and exposed which allows for good views of the birds but, as with any shorebird watching, a telescope is highly desirable. In addition to the coastal areas there are large expanses of freshwater wetlands further inland, consisting of rice paddies and fishponds which are inhabited by Crakes, Rails, Egrets and, in the winter, large raptors.
