Day 1 Kota Kinabalu -I
@ Kota Kinabalu Wetland Centre
Although we saw/heard quite a few birds in the Wetlands, the dense vegetation and dark shade didn't allow me to take photos as successfully as I'd wished.
This beautiful kingfisher is very vocal and we heard them everywhere but it was very difficult to spot in the jungle!
This bulbul is one of the most common birds in Kota Kinabalu, just like Brown-eared Bulbuls in Japan.
We had a lovely view of a Brahminy Kite.
Views from the canopy
I thought we were going to see open madflats there but KKWC has mangrove forests(jungle) in the middle of the city!
and some parts of the paths were like that!
4 or 5 tortoises were kept in an enclosure by the centre.
