Pangkor Island 4

Pulau Pangkor – Hutan Lipur

I grabbed my rental motorbike at about 8am and set off around the island pas Telok Dalam to Hutan Lipur, a bit of forest that has been forgotten about with a wrecked road and a resort at the end of it that is deserted. After that, I kept going to Telok Nipah and found a few more birds. Nothing new today, it was actually a bit of a dud. But you never know.
