16th - 20th December 2012
Spent few nights with Tim and Andrew at Mt. Kinabalu and Sepilok recently and during the trip, saw around 116 birds with key species such as Mt. Serpent Eagle, Whithead's Trogon, Bornean Bristlehead and pictures shown below. But dipped on Rufous-collared and Banded Kingfisher at Rainforest Discovery Centre due to the non-stop rain on the 20th December.

Happy birding !
