Sepilok Forest Edge Resort 2

2/2/2020. Morning. After a horror night getting woken up by screaming kids at 2am, I wombled out of bed just before 7am and went down to the breakfast station where I had my ritual cup of coffee and a few snacks. I had a view from the restaurant so I stayed there for a while taking some photos. A couple of birders from Kuala Lumpur turned up so there was quite a breakfast party going on. Eventually I tore myself away from the free coffee and went for a wander around the grounds of the resort.
