    Not just me then. The humidity was horrendous at TN. Panti was much easier, just the standard equatorial heat and humidity rather than TN's "boil in the bag" setting.

    Rail-Babbler Perhaps I was unlucky at TN but I didn't get a sniff in 5 days. At Panti, I heard a bird after 2 hours and saw it in the same place the next day. 4pm seemed to be the time this individual started vocalising. I had visited the exact spot in the morning.

    Malaysian Partridge stake-out I was expecting to put in a couple of hours at most but it took nearly 8 hours to get good views; 5 mins is very good timing indeed.

    Thanks Thanks to all that offered advice on birding in Malaysia. Some feedback: The Mountain PP obliged at Bukit Tinggi as per instructions. At Fraser's there are now many bird photographers of the type that do not own binoculars! The Partridge site was like attending a football match, get...

    Does anyone have an up to date IOC checklist for Pen. Malaysia that can be used for recording a trip of 21 days, ideally in word or excel, that they can share? Avibase have IOC8.1 but seem to only want to give me 10 days worth of recording room in pdf format. When converted to a document, these...

    Good to see you too and thanks again for putting me on the bird. Hope you didn't put in too much time waiting for it to return. I managed to get into work for 07.45!

    Andy, that is a nice little collection. I have heard the damn things many times, mainly in August! I get the impression that June is a good time to connect but that is no use to me. Cheers, Paul

    Cheers Hi Dave, Thanks for the info. Most on the list are tricky to see and my expectations for a clean-up are low. Have managed untickable view of a few on the list and like Steve Babbs have been frustrated by Rail-Babbler vocalisations in the past. Thanks again and good luck. Drop me a...

    Thanks Hi D, Thanks. Have not walked the High Pines trail but it sounds promising, will give it a go. Not even considered the Merapoh entrance at TN due to lack of info. Is it easy to access and is there a trail network? Many thanks. Paul

    Thanks Hi Andy Thanks for the info. TN is a difficult place to bird, I thought it was over run with visitors 20 years ago but imagine it has got even busier now. Will spend about 5 days there which is really not enough time, I know. Red-legged Crake in Singapore: Are these resident? Thought...
