Sayap Sub-station, Kinabalu National Park

29-30th May 2016



Short camping trip with friends exploring the northwest side of Mt Kinabalu at Sayap Sub-station in Kota Belud district. It took about 2 hours drive from KK to reached the station at the elevation around 900m asl.

The planned was to look for the Bornean Frogmouth and Bonaparte Nightjar, but without luck and it was compensated by the Orange-breasted Trogon and Long-tailed Broadbill with the super tame Hill Blue Flycatcher!
