Backyard Birding in Pulau Pangkor

These photos are all that I have taken in a week or so. I have taken photos of all the birds except the Black-naped Terns.

Black-naped Tern
Black-naped Tern (Sterna sumatrana)

These tern were out in the middle of the channel, about half a kilometer away. I was lucky to get a semi-usable photo. I thought they may have been White-winged Tern (Chlidonias leucopterus) but the good folk at #BirdTheFeckAtHome facebook group set me straight.

A pair of Smooth-coated Otter frolicking around in the shallows near my guest-house. They are pretty wary, but. As soon as you stick your head out and they see you, they are off.
