my day of birdwatching with you and Richard.
Highlights for me were: Grey-headed Fish Eagle,
Crimson Sunbird, Stork-billed Kingfisher and Oriental

My total new species for the trip was 53."

you also for a great day's birding in Singapore.

I thought I would drop you a note and say thanks
again for a fantastic day out at Panti.
According to my notes we saw 64 species in Malaysia,
