Raptor Watch coming around again

Join us at the lighthouse at Tanjung Tuan, Melaka (actually on the lawns of the Ilham Resort) on the 14th and 15th of March for the never to be forgotten sight of a stream of birds arriving from Indonesia. (Well, as long as it is not raining over there...)

If you want to know more about it, take a look here for my photos of past years, and for an explanation of what it is all about.

We have a bird watching fair, suitable for all the family from the baby to the grandma - a shady place to sit and enjoy the sight, plus stalls, things to buy, (foodfair, books, optics on sale), walks in the forest, a long the beach and all the usual games and nature talks, and telescopes to see with.

It is FREE.

See here for the Malaysian Nature Society's Raptorwatch page: http://www.raptorwatch.org
for the details of what's on. They even have the latest raptor counts for the lighthouse. Oh, ok, they are a few days behind with updating. I shall chide then about it tomorrow...

See you there.

Great photo of a beautiful looking bird.

Do you need a caption for this one too?
How about...

Wish I could join you Glenda, it must be the most incredible sight. Poor birdy, lost his ice cream. What kind of bird is it Glenda?
