New Trip Report: Sabah and Sarawak

Here’s a report that Adam Walleyn sent to me. As Adam notes, this birding tour report contains very little information on the mammals they saw, but I think it is worth sharing because they saw some premier league species including Bay Cat and Tufted Ground Squirrel.  And some information is better than none.

Sabah & Sarawak, 2023: Rockjumper Tours, 26 days & 57 species including Sunda Clouded Leopard, Bay Cat, Otter Civet, Spot-winged Fruit Bat and a Tufted Ground Squirrel.

      Steady on Alan!

        I know a birdwatcher that saw an Eurasian Lynx with cubs in a meadow in full daylight in Slovenia. Cubs were playing.

    As usual no photos of those Bay cats…
    Despite looking at it for a long time it seems…
