Another day at the lighthouse

Counters at work - and it was 38 degrees (over 100F) in the shade...

Every morning the resident Javan Mynas fly out over the sea and perform an aerial dance for our benefit.

Today was a wonderful day - two and a half thousand raptors, mostly Oriental Honey-Buzzards, with a sprinkling of Grey-faced Buzzards and Black Bazas, not to mention Barn Swallows, Fork-tailed Swifts, and Blue-throated and Blue Tailed Bee-eaters, all on their way north....

Remember, you are coming to join us this weekend, right? Ilham Resort, Port Dickson. Bird Fair. Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. I will be giving a talk on Saturday on Raptor Migration.

I'd love to hear you speak on raptors, let alone see the birds! What a wonderful event to witness.
