Any birders planning on visiting Doi Ang Khang this winter should be aware that all accomodation, including Ang Khang Nature Resort and Ban Luang Resort have been forced to close, with some resorts also having been demolished. Camping is still permitted.
If you are planning on visiting Keang Krachan NP within the next 18 months the road between Bang Krang campsite and Paneom Tung will be closed for 500+ days whilst they resurface the road.
No doubt a large increase in visitors will follow, along with speeding cars and less wildlife.
It has been reported that there are plans at Kaeng Krachan to pave the road after the river crossings to the top at Phanoen Thung. Consequently this road will be closed for about a year from August, as well as the top campsite.
The first Spoon-billed Sandpiper of the winter was reported from Pak Thale Oct 26th.
