A recording from Kaeng Krachan National Park, Thailand
I’ve just spent a few days inside the stunning Kaeng Krachan National Park, Thailand – one of my favourite south-east Asian reserves for wildlife and bird watching! Because of it’s rich biodiversity, it’s a great spot for sound recording and I’ve captured about 30 hours of audio I need to review!
This is a sample recorded along the main access road at first light, in an area of rainforest adjacent to a small wetland. You can hear the calls of a variety of bird species including Greater Racket-tailed Drongo, Blue-winged Pitta and Puff-throated Babbler. Frogs and insects are prominent (including flies – sorry but that’s the reality of a rainforest marsh!)
I’ll be soon compiling a series of albums from Thailand – this recording will be included on the upcoming album ‘Thailand’s Tropical Rainforest‘. [Update 15th Jan 2015: this album has now been published!]
