More Monkeys Taiping

Kaki Bukit Larut

Up again early this morning and caught a Grab taxi to Kaki Bukit Larut. This time I did not bother to clamber up the hill with the hordes of tourists, but went left to the waterfall. Not so many birds around. It was still a bit overcast. And it even rained for a little while. So I took shelter in a Hindu temple being repaired.

  1. It looks like the blue-throated bee-eater has caught himself a hefty cicada rather than a bee! Good on ya mate
