Please take note there is a certain stretch of winding road after the Karak toll can be quite treacherous when wet. In one incident a Singapore birder AlexT who was following me to Krau has the misfortunate to hit the centre barrier while manuevering the bends. It is best to remind you to slow down to 70-80kph there. I have seen a new BMW 530 series with all its ABS EBD & ESC tech but still went off the road because of speeding. Some says these dastardly tow truck syndicate do pour diesel before the rain comes on these roads as they wait for accident to happen there. So be warned.
|Buff-eared is a rarity here|
|Dollarbird is seasonal|
|Long-tailed Parakeet usually can be sighted in the higher canopies|
|Scarlet-rumped is a "sure see"|
Anyway here is my take in the month of May 2016.
|The female Diard's|
|The handsome male Diard's|
Bukit Rengit is aptly called the land of Trogons because all the lowland species of the cinnamon, scarlet rumped ,diard's and the red-naped can be sighted along the entire stretch of the road leading to Krau forest reserve.
|The female Orange-bellied Flowerpecker|
|The yellow bellied bulbul is one of the largest you can see here|
