1st March 2009
Supposed to go and stay overnight at Teluk Usukan Resort with friends for birding, but could not make it last minute. I have to go next time probably next week ?
So i paid a quick visit to Dalit Beach where I used to go picnic with my grandparents, uncles and aunties when I was living with them in primary school. Lots of changes after with the Rasa Ria Resort was built few years ago. But what I like, the beach itself still in pristine condition hehehe no rubbish at all !
Lesser Frigatebird circling above the small hill where the resort is running an awareness program with few Orang Utan for their visitors. Other than that, single Yellow Wagtail with lots of Barn Swallow, Spotted and Zebra Dove and Collared Kingfisher calling from the bush.
Along the beach, I saw at least 25 Kentish Plover, 4 Red-necked Stint and 20 over Lesser and Greater Sand Plover. Some of them is in breeding plumage and few juvenile around too.
Pictures not very good due to the shimmer heat from the sand. Digiscoped with Nikon Fieldscope ED82, SRB-Griturn Mk II adapter and Fujifilm F31D
Happy birding !
