Krabi - February 2013

We thought we would try a short break in Krabi from 4 - 8 Feb. staying in Ao Nang.
Although not a serious birding trip we did try our luck one morning around the Mangrove Boardwalk near Krabi town, but we were disappointed with few birds sighted and nothing really notable.
We arranged transport to Khao Nor Chu Chi (KNC) for the following morning thinking we might get lucky with the Gurney's Pitta. But no such luck.
We covered some of the walks in the sanctuary but there were many visitors, especially large groups of school children on their nature appreciation trip, and without a guide we only managed hear the Gurney's Pitta, not even a glimpse. We will organize a guide for our next trip to KNC.

Even though the birds were not cooperating we still enjoyed our stay in Krabi.
