Bits and pieces, Penang, Nov 2011

Another Riparia martin at Kampung Permatang Nibong on 20th Nov. Until these can be trapped and measured, I fear we won't be able to say with confidence whether Pale Martin, Sand Martin or both are occurring in the Peninsula.

It was at a remarkably similar stage of moult as a bird photographed 2 years ago on 12 Nov.

One of a couple of Malaysian Hawk-cuckoos which put on an amazing eye-level performance at Penang Botanical Gardens on the morning of Nov 18th. I didn't have my camera with me (didn't expect to see much - oh me of little faith!); both these pics are courtesy of Peter Harris.
