Birding with Sanjee and Asha

9th - 18th September 2023

Sanjee's 3rd visit to Malaysia and the first for Asha on the custom made birding tour around Sabah mainly for the Bornean endemics and other wildlife. Recorded over 180 species of birds despite the bad weathers at places of birding and we got most of the key species such as Bulwer's Pheasant, Whitehead's Broadbill, Wreathed Hornbill and Bornean Bristlehead.

They are currently at Danum Valley with Theo and I was informed, in flight Bornean Ground-Cuckoo flew in front of their vehicle on the way to the Field Centre! What a great day to start!
