Our final day dawned the way we had hoped our first day would – with heavy rain and continuing showers on and off. We only had the morning, as our flight was due to leave around midday.
A different Siberian Stonechat (a female this time) was at the airport, and a Little Ringed Plover sat looking miserable in the marina boat park.
Signs of a good fresh arrival of birds – just as we were preparing to leave! The construction site held an exhausted-looking Oriental Pratincole, but all too soon, frustratingly, it was time to pack up and head for the airport.
A Large-billed Crow at the Departure Lounge telling us where to go!
Finally, as we touched down in KL, the monsoon had arrived!
So our first November visit to Tioman – not as good as we had hoped for, but good enough to make us want to try again next year! Wanna join us?
