Timing

We spent three and a half week of birding in the Malaysian Peninsular. August and the beginning of September are quite good for birding in this part of the country. It is the time just before the rainy season. There is a huge amount of food, especially for the fruit-eating birds like bulbuls, pigeons and also hornbills. But there are still some flowering trees for flowerpeckers, sunbirds and spiderhunters. Songbirds like babblers and also cuckoos are harder to find. They are calling or singing just occasionally. Besides that, you’ll have simply a larger number of birds because it’s just after the breeding season. We also had a few migrants like the magnificent but very early Yellow-rumped Flycatcher and a great number of waders. We chose to spend our last days in areas where you can find some early migrants. That gives some extra excitement for the fanatic birder. But... March and April are probably better. But it’s not really convenient for students like us.

Flight

We had a direct flight from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur. Our departure date was the 14th of August (12:00) and we arrived on the 15th of August (06:00) in Kuala Lumpur. We flew with Malaysian Airlines, one of the best airlines in the world. The crew was helpful and most friendly. You can choose your own films, play games and get as much drinks if you want.

Weather

Only a few days we had some rain. On the last days of our trip it was raining. Beginning of the rainy season I guess? Fraser’s hill and the Cameron Highlands were chilly.22-28 C°. But at lower levels you will find out that it’s really moist and warm.

Vaccinations and parasites

We had a DTP and Hepatitis-A Vaccine. Hepatitis-B is not needed but you’ll never know. There are only a few. Malaria records in the last ten years or so on the peninsular. When you’ll choose to go to Borneo you’ll need some preventive pills. Watch out for some mosquitoes though. I spend my last days of the trip in my hotel-bed and also 2 weeks at home in bed because of Dengue. It’s a virus that’s spread by mosquitoes. I was really sick, high fever, awful headaches, swollen glands, red, almost pinkish face. I won’t scare you but I think you’ll have to be aware of the ‘dengue mosquito’, they are simply recognisable by his black/whitestriped body, and we saw them in Taman Negara. You require a lot of DEET, also for the Leeches. On some trails at Fraser’s hill but especially in Taman Negara leeches are abundant. There are leech-socks on the market. Look for it on the internet. Or just buy enough DEET. We also had some Ticks as well.

Food and drinks

For a western guy like me, the malaysian kitchen is very good. The most basic food like mee-hoen,nasi goreng or mee are very cheap and delicious. Often served with shrimps. Ask for roti if you want a good breakfast. There are some thai and chinese influences aswell, or you can choose a western meal, so you are not stuck on the local food. We can’t complain about Tiger beer by the way. Bring enough water and salt or electrolyte with you while walking in Taman Negara.

Taping and sounds

We didn’t learn every sound by head but a few starbirds like pitta’s, railbabbler, hornbills and the groundbirds are easy to learn. Some birds are reacting very well to tape, like most pitta’s and scimitar babblers. But Rail Babbler, Rusty-Naped Pitta and a few babbler species didn’t react to tape, (we used quite a large Ipod box to attract the birds).

Preparation and field Guides

We used: Birds of South-east Asia by Craig Robson, We ordered also The Field Guide to the birds of West Malaysia and Singapore. The last book was less helpful. On the site www.naturesniche.com you can order the following books by Draco Publishing: Birds of Taman Negara and Birds of Fraser’s Hill. You can also buy this books at the office of Mr.Durai at Fraser’s Hill.

Locations and accommodation

The Gap(G)
This is a very good site for watching lowland-birds together with sub-montane birds. You can only bird from a paved road. The Gap Resthouse is re-opened, but don’t expect a luxury stay, and the breakfast was terrible by the way. We found out that the terrace of the resthouse was very good for birdwatching early in the morning and late afternoon. It is really worth staying a couple of days.

Fraser’s Hill (FH)
This place is fantastic. A very birdy area and a good temperature, sometimes foggy in the early morning. This is the place to see all malaysian endemics. Although Mountain Peacock-Pheasant is very rare and we of course did not see it. Stay at Puncak Inn and Mr. Durai (durefh@hotmail.com) will find you and might give you some helpful information about the birds. Birdwatchers get 10% discount in the Puncak Inn Hotel. One of the best places in the peninsular for montane species.

Taman Negara (TN)
It is a real paradise. I was very excited about this place. Taman Negara is one of the oldest (rain)forests in the world. In the most remote places of the park you’ll have the change to encounter a Tiger, Leopard, Rhino or an Elephant. But Tapir, Leopard Cat and Malayan Civet are more easier to find. Try the Kumbang hide for a few nights and you will see a couple of these. There are enough trails. River Trail and Jenat Muda Trail are probably the best trails and worth visitting several times. If you have enough time try the Yong and Blau area and/or the Kumbang area. These places are more quiet and remote and will add some other birds on the list.

There are many tourists from all over the world and there is plenty of accommodation. We chose the Mutiara Resort. A good place for birds, but very expensive for local standards. 280 Ringit per night, but we arranged a 80 ringit discount. On the east bank of Kuala Tahan, you will find accomodation of no more than 10 Ringit per night. But you will possibly miss the chance to bird in the early hours because the water-taxi’s start operating from app. 7:30 On this side of the bank there’s also a internet-cafe.

Cameron Highlands (CH)
We stayed at the town of Tanah Rata. Most of the people here are Indian or Chinese. Nice place. Gunung Brinchang is a very good place for montane species such as Golden-Throated Barbet, Grey-headed Woodpecker, Rufous-winged Fulvetta,Snowy-browed Flycatcher,Chestnut-tailed Minla and Rufous-vented Niltava. The Parit and Robinson Falls are good places for both whistling thrushes. Most of these aforementioned species are hard to find or absent at Fraser’s Hill.

Kuala Selangor (KS)
You will find scrub and mangrove forests, lagoons, small wetlands and mudflats in a small reserve full of birds. We stayed in the village but there is also the possibility to hire one of the chalets inside the reserve.

Sekinchan and surrounding area’s (SK)
20 km north of Kuala Selangor and worth visiting if you want to see waders, bitterns or White-breasted Woodswallows. We stayed a couple of hours at Pantai Rasa Sayang. This is at high-tide a very good spot for waders and terns. The Sempadan (small-scale) rice field was also good for adding more species to our bird list.

Shah Alam (SA)
Taman Pertanian is nearby the town of Shah Alam. This rainforest site isn’t very interresting, as it is used extensively for recreational uses. There are some nice tracks north of the dams, but nothing here isn’t to be found at the other rain forests sites. But it was close to the hotel where Frank tried to recover from his illness. We slept at the Quality hotel on the 22nd floor and it was really good.

Kuala Lumpur/Mining pools (KL)
The area is now extensively built upon. Only the biggest lake survived the onslaught. It is only a 10 minute drive from central KL. But It is a good spot for migrants. We heard about the Paya Indah Wetlands (old tin mining pools) near the International Airport of Kuala Lumpur. Unfortunately we didn’t had enough time to visit this place but it should be very good for some other birds like Pheasant-tailed Jacana, Cotton Pygmy Goose and Lesser Whistling Duck. These birds are hard to find elsewhere in the peninsular.

Species
326 species were recorded on this trip. 275 were new for us, because we never went to East Asia before. The next species were possibly recorded but are not 100% sure. Red-billed Malkoha(G), Yellow-vented Pigeon(G) Other birders recorded the following species during our stay: Large Green Pigeon (TN) Marbled Wren Babbler(G).

Species List

1.Crested Partridge Rollulus rouloul
TN- 8 birds were seen beside the trail to the Canopy Walkway (5 males,3 females on 25/8) Also a big group (15+) were seen in the early morning crossing the Jenat Muda Trail. These birds are shy and often difficult to see, they really dislike human company.

2.Malayan Partridge Arborophila campbelli
FH- On 18/8 we saw 8 individuals of this endemic species besides the Bischops trail and on the 20th we saw also 7 individuals really close to the path at the very beginning of the Bischops trail. In the dry season the leafs rustle while the birds forage, so these birds are easier to find. They are active in early morning and late afternoon. These birds were really one of the highlights of the trip. Magnificent views and really close! Not shy, just approach carefully.

3.Red Junglefowl Gallus gallus
KS- We heard several daily at the park. Some birds were heard close to path but seemed impossible to see. Also heard near the lagoon. The Eagle trail is possibly the best trail for this species. But the trail around the lagoon should also be a good place to see these birds.

3. Crested Fireback Lophura ignita
TN- Seen almost daily around the HQ area at Kuala Tahan. Often in the late afternoon and in the morning. Also seen besides the Sungei Tahan on 24th of August. The Campsite near Lubok Simpon is also a really good site for this bird. Taman Negara is said to be the best place in the world to see this bird.

4. Malayan Peacock Pheasant Polyplectron malacense
TN- Heard on different dates around the HQ area of Kuala Tahan and at the Swamp Loop. On 25-8 we saw close to the path an adult male passing by, at the trail to the canopy walkway. On the 26th we heard one calling near the Blau Hide. On 30th of August one beautiful male was present at the River Trail. A very shy bird.

5. Great Argus Argusianus argus
TN- On different mornings we heard the Great Argus calling.(Swamp Loop and the trail to the Canopy walkway) Also one male was calling near the Kumbang hide on 29/8.We found one male at the top of the Jenat Muda trail on 23/8.This bird showed very well for a long time while walking on the trail. Stunning!

6. Speckled Piculet Picumimnis innominatus
FH- One male was present in a group of Mountain Fulvettas at the old road on 16/8, 1 km before the gate. CH- another male was seen at the road to Gunung Brinchang just 2,5 km before the summit. This bird is often seen in birdwaves, and easily overlooked.

7. Rufous Piculet Sasia Abnormis
TN- One bird was seen by F.D. in a bird wave in the canopy from the Tabing Hide, another was seen on the Swamp Loop by P.B. a few days later while taping a Banded Pitta.
