Hi All,

I have been fortunate to do a fair bit of travelling for birding recently and have managed to squeeze in visits to Peninsular Malaysia, Vietnam and Ethiopia (outside of Southern Africa) in the last 12 months. I have included below just a sampling of some of the birds seen on these trips, but if anyone is interested, I have full trip reports with lots of photos on my website at http://www.hardaker.co.za . Just click on the “my trips” link in the left margin to get to the trip reports.

I am off in just a few days to Argentina and then after that to the Falklands, South Georgia and finally Antarctica, so hopefully when I return, I will have a few more photos to share…

Crested Serpent Eagle – Peninsular Malaysia


White-throated Kingfisher – Peninsular Malaysia


Common Flameback – Peninsular Malaysia


Black-naped Oriole – Peninsular Malaysia


Green Magpie – Peninsular Malaysia


Spotted Redshank - Vietnam


Common Kingfisher - Vietnam


Black-crested Bulbul - Vietnam


Long-tailed Shrike - Vietnam


Bay Woodpecker - Vietnam


Vulturine Guineafowl - Ethiopia


Grasshopper Buzzard - Ethiopia


Buff-crested Korhaan - Ethiopia

Kind regards
Trevor

G'day Trevor

Great photos esp. the Peninsular Malaysia birds. I'm off to read your trip report. I went there in 2005 and 2007 and have had great birding in Taman Negara, Fraser's Hill etc. My trip reports are at:

G'day Trevor

I've just looked at your Ethiopia trip report. Ethiopia is one of the places my wife and I might get posted to with Australian Volunteers International in 2010. It's just jumped higher on my list of countries to say 'Yes' to.

Thanks
Steve

Very nice photos those and I am very envious of all the places you get to visit. I enjoy following the blogs on your site as well as the rare bird newsletter, so keep up the good work!
