28th September - 3rd October
Working in Asia provides opportunities for The Synders to visit some of the exotic birding places such as Taiwan and after spending a week in Thailand, Borneo was their next destination. During the trip, it produces some of the finest birds found in my place such as Rufous-collared Kingfisher, Brown-backed Needletail and Whitehead's Trogon.
The Synders both equipped with the latest gadget from Canon !
Weather was good except it was raining heavily on the way back to Sukau Greenview Bed & Breakfast Lodge, Kinabatangan River at one afternoon. All wet ! The trip ended at Mt. Kinabalu.
