Malaysians: what you should be doing this weekend

.
This from the Malaysian Nature Society president:

MNS will be organizing Raptor Watch weekend for the 11th year running and this year we anticipate a bigger, better event than ever before! Raptor Watch will be held 13-14th March 2010, in conjunction with MNS's 70th anniversary at the traditional grounds of Ilham Resort Tanjung Tuan, Melaka (10th Mile Port Dickson).

Already our raptor counters are chalking up numbers that do not disappoint with a total of 27,210 raptors being counted as of 8th March 2010. This includes 1,302 Oriental Honey Buzzards on a single day and it looks as if we are on track for a new record total count this year. Our 65-day count last year totaled over 38 000 raptors.

It’s that time of year again so come join us! For more information on activities you can participate in, map and other information, pls log on to www.raptorwatch.org

See you all there.

This must be the third raptor watch in which you have participated since I have known you. I so wish I could be there, it must be very exciting to see so many raptors. I generally count myself lucky to see a single red tailed hawk.
