I was invited by Dr Shahrul and his team from School of Biological Sciences to do a small survey at Baling. This is the result preliminary survey...

A view of a nice limestone hill just beside Baling town...don't know the hill name. Baling hill perhaps.




This shot was taken from the hotel we stay, Bayu Hotel.

During this preliminary survey, i didn't really had the time to do birding as we are busy going back n forth in the van to locate all the area the survey to be done. We mainly concentrate on the herpetofauna and bats.

here are some of the catch..

A lame attempt on wide angle of juvenile Tropidolaemus wagleri, Wagler's Pit Viper






Another wide shot of Duttaphrynus melanostictus, Common Sunda Toad











A glossy swiftlet (correct me if i'm wrong)







I didn't know they have feather on the toe...




The nest...







A wide shot of male great anglehead lizard. The lighting was harsh..











The only catch for the harp trap, Hipposideros diadema,











Hylarana labiallis, White lipped Frog,











Quite an unexpected find, Philautus parvulus,











Ptychozoon lionotum, Smooth backed gliding lizard. My lifer...















Triangle keelback,











Xenophrys aceras, Perak spadefoot frog.










What a nice place...i'll surely come back to do a proper bird checklist for this area...
