Tangkap Gambar Burung di Langkawi

I went straight down the road to Kedawang and took the road that goes along the airport. I stopped next to the YatieRose Cafe, and just wandered along the road. There were a fair few birds this morning, mainly feeding on the fruiting trees. I even got a tick. I thought it was a Eurasian Tree Sparrow, doh!
