Birding With Naturetrek Part 2

26th - 29th August 2010





Little Spiderhunter


One of the bird seen daily visiting the red flower that grow near the restaurant at Tabin Wildlife Reserve recently with Naturetrek group from UK led by a good friend of mine, Chris Kehoe. Had a great time birding with them especially along the mud volcano trail with key species such as Large Green Pigeon, Thick-billed Green Pigeon (my 2nd sighting), heard both Banded and Giant Pitta too !

They are currently at Mt. Kinabalu for their extension tour until this Saturday. I will be staying for few nights at the mountain from the 1st - 3rd September with Ck and a birder from England :)
