Many thanks for all the help. I've now got tight gen on the MPP and where the rail-babbler has been at Krau. If anyone has general birding tips for Krau, that would still be of use.

Just birding along the road, Steve. This area of Krau, by 'Deerland' (please don't park in their car park, it's for visitors to the park only) is very small now and heavily degraded but so very pleasant. The couple of trails that persist don't really go on for long.
Bear in mind, this is one of my local patches, and despite numerous visits every year (sometimes several times a month), I have yet to see the Rail-babbler come to the feeding area, it's extremely sporadic, but when it comes (1-2 times a years) it tends to hang around for a week or three (whenever I'm away!).
You will need to bring your own mealworms, just in case, as photographers aren't there everyday (less regularly than the MPP site).

Have a great time,

James

I'll think of it as a long shot then!

Cheers for the gen James. I'll be off to Taman Negara for nine nights afterwards so maybe I was just jinked in my previous three weeks spent failing to see rail-babbler there!
