A massive range of other species including 19 species of Woodpecker (including Bamboo at the Gap FH), 4 Trogons, 23 species of Flycatcher, 21 species of Bulbul (including Black-and-White and Finch's), 32 species of Babblers and a really good mix of migrants including Oriental Honey Buzzard (one flock of 126 was quite impressive over FH), Black Baza (KS), Siberian, Eye-browed and Orange-headed Thrushes, Tiger and Brown Shrikes, Asian Brown, Yellow-rumped and Mugimaki Flycatchers, Arctic, Eastern Crowned and Yellow-browed Warblers.
Plenty of other birds too.. sunbirds, flowerpeckers, spiderhunters, warblers, bee-eaters, raptors, owls, nightjars, cuckoos, barbets, hornbills, orioles, herons, kingfishers, swifts (inc Whiskred and Grey-rumped Treeswifts), forktails, leafbirds, pigeons etc... the list goes on.
I think I recorded in the region of 320 species in 3 weeks - note I didn't do the rice paddies/estuaries while near the coast which would have upped the 'trip-list' considerably by providing a large range of waders (most of which I've already seen so not that fussed)... I got around via taxi mainly which worked out a lot cheaper than hiring a car and was generally not a problem.
An interesting range of animals also seen including several snakes (almost stood on a 10ft long Black Cobra!), Tapir, White-handed Gibbon, Siamang, Langurs, Macaques, Orb-spiders, Bird-eating spiders (all spiders huge and hideous!), giant millipedes, tonnes of butterflies - some huge, some tiny, many incredibly colourful, plenty of moths - some big ones!, lizards - some flying, geckos, huge Monitor Lizards, bats, squirrels - tiny to giant, rats, tree shrews, deer (Sambar and Mouse), ants etc and the odd Mosquito and Leech!
A few pictures of some birds below: lots more photos of birds/animals/landscapes etc to sort through and will follow as and when I have time to go through them! Due to the conditions (e.g. dark forests etc many pics are taken on very high ISO, hence why they may be grainy, but in the most part I was just happy to get a record shot!)
I met some really nice visiting birders while in Malaysia (and a few local guides), all of who helped massively in finding birds, passing on gen etc and generally making the whole trip really enjoyable. Looking forward to heading back over there... Pittas are addictive!
