Mantanani Island Trip

 30th May - 1st June

My last visit was during the Sabah Big Year in Oct 2022 but had a problem with my smartphone so not able to update the trip with the gang. These time I nailed the Mantanani Scope Owl again on its usual spot near Arahni Homestay including Pied and Grey Imperial Pigeon and the shy Philippine Megapode with Alizah and Aaron from Brunei.
