Pangkor Island 2

Pulau Pangkor – Sungai Pinang Kechil

I hired a motorbike this morning to go see around the island of Pangkor. I stopped at a few chinese cemeteries and got some photos of some bulbuls. There were heaps of Oriental Pied Hornbills around. Last night I counted more than twenty near the road just before sunset. I went right around the island. I was a bit late so I did not worry about chasing birds so much as discovering places that I could come back to later. I found quite a few. Let us see what tomorrow may bring.
