Buffy Fish Owl ...

19th July 2012

Saw this pretty Owl day time at Menanggul river while cruising for the rare Bornean Ground Cuckoo (with excellent view !) with John and John Seymour from Australia. The 5 days trip came out with Bornean Bristlehead, Violet Cuckoo, White-crowned Hornbill, Rufous-collared Kingfisher, Bornean Falconet plus 4 Orang Utan including one immature, albino Silver Leaf Monkey and the elusive Bornean Pygmy Elephant.

Taken with Nikon D300s + 300mm 2.8 VR II at f2.8, ISO 800, 1/100s

Will be on tour again this Monday until the 2nd August with a couple from US. Hope luck will be on my side for the Blue-banded Kingfisher at Tabin Wildlife Reserve

Happy birding !
