Storm's Stork, Kinabatangan Jungle Camp
BORNEO AND SINGAPORE 2.-24.08.2014. BIRD AND MAMMAL TRIP REPORT
Jurek D – [email protected]
This private trip was great if intensive. 221 species of birds were seen, including 28-31 endemics
depending on taxonomy and 143 lifers. 10 more were heard including 7 heard new and 3 endemics.
The best day was at Sepilok on 10.08. with 25 lifers. Note that widespread Asian birds were
purposefully omitted, concentrating on endemics and mammals.
Highlights were Whitehead's Trogon and Broadbill and multiple Bare-headed Laughingthrushes at
Mt Kinabalu, Hose's Broadbill and Bornean Spiderhunter at Poring, Blue-naped Parrot, Hooded and
Black-and-crimson Pittas and White-faced Falconet at Sepilok, Bornean Ground Cuckoo, Whitecrowned Hornbill and camp-visiting Storm's Storks at Kinabatangan, and at Danum lots of lowland
birds with multiple Bristleheads and Great Arguses.
44 species of mammals were seen. They included three Orangutans, many Proboscis Monkeys, two
Otter Civets, Slow Loris, plus two Colugos in Singapore. Plants included two species of Rafflesia
and large and tiny pitcher plants Nepenthes. Reptiles included Saltwater Crocodiles, invertebrates
included numerous big butterflies, moths and beetles, trilobite-beetles and of course lots of leeches.
I want to thank Bert S. from Belgium/Sevilla, Remco Hofland, Peter Chong, David E. from
Sheffield and other birders from DVFC, Steffen Böhner, Chlidonias and Zooish for their help.
One of many Proboscis Monkeys - Kinabatangan River
Best moments:
- Running towards the calls of Bornean Bristlehead, and unexpectedly startling male Great Argus,
which ran into the bushes waving its enormous tail high in the air – and seeing my first Bristlehead
just second later.
- Standing under a giant forest tree, when huge flanged male Orangutan threw branches at me.
- Standing on the path of a bird flock in misty Kinabalu mountain, with birds flying past left and
right – including Bare-headed Laughingthrushes and Whitehead's Broadbills.
- Night walk in pitch black Danum forest, in claustrophobic dense thicket – when Large Frogmouth
called right next to me.
- Watching habituated Storm's Storks from a veranda in Kinabatangan and feeding by hand a
rehabilitated one which keeps returning to the camp for nine years.
- Waiting behind a dead tree log for another Argus, when male Crested Fireback started walking on
the log towards me.
- Watching four species of raptors hunt a stream of bats overhead near Gomantong Caves –
Peregrines, Bat Hawks, Brahminy Ktes and Wallace's Hawk Eagles.
- All the colorful pheasants, broadbills, pittas and barbets by day and bizarre Slow Loris, Otter and
other Civets and Giant Flying Squirrels by night.
- And urban sprawl at Singapore – with White-bellied Sea Eagles circling between enormous
skyscrapers and Colugos in urban parks.

Logistics
There are numerous trip reports from Borneo which cover the place in detail. I used mostly:
- Bent Otto Poulsen: Birding Sabah, Borneo (2010) – has locality maps
- Remco Hofland: Sabah, NE Borneo, Nov 29 – Dec 23, 2013, Includes info on Hook-billed Bulbul
at Klias Peatswamp Boardwalk - both downloaded from cloudbirders.com.
- Nigel Wheatley, Where to Watch Birds in Asia – this book has useful info on localities, although
stake-outs are long gone.
- Mammalwatching.com – trip reports by Jon Hall himself on this site are useful for mammals.
Accomodation and car (ArgusCar Hire) were booked in advance online. Websites of national parks
provided useful info.
Nokia Maps on my smartphone turned sufficent to drive around KK. I downloaded maps for
Malaysia and Singapore for offline use and put localities at home. Note, that this smartphone went
dead in the rain on the last-but-one day in Danum, together with bird calls, copies of tickets, photos
etc. Also, I lost rechargeable batteries for the spotlight at Kinabatangan, probably due to electrical
power voltage swings. So I was frantically searching in Lahad Datu for new batteries and strongest
possible torch. So Borneo is bad for electric gadgets, take spares and paper copies of documents!
And of bring lots of re-sealable plastic bags, plus check that they have no holes. :)
West Borneo proved surprisingly civilized. Finding birds in mid-summer was difficult. Virtually
nothing responded to tapes and everything was found outside expected stake-outs.
Crocker Range/Rafflesia Reserve
No good accomodation here, best visited by rented car (1h drive to Kota Kinabalu town, 2h drive to
Poring). Logistics is walking on the road around Rafflesia Centre and down to the temple with the
Brown Wood Owl, Kinabatangan Jungle Camp
waterfall (apparently Whitehead's Broadbill but I saw only numerous Black-and-Red Orioles).
Rafflesia flowers shown by the staff at the centre are more expensive and smaller than in Poring.
Poring Hot Springs:
Hotel: Poring Hot Spring & Reserve Hotel, booked via agoda.com. Comfortable but expensive. It
might be possible to sleep in cheaper hotel outside Poring compound and walk in before dawn
(contrary to some reports, the entry gate is not closed at night).
Logistics: I walked Waterfall Trail and saw Hose's Broadbill at 4000m marker. The forest was rich
in birds but none of the specialities mentioned in trip reports more than 3 years ago (Blue-headed
Pitta, Rufous-collared Kingfisher, Chestnut-capped Thrush, White-necked Babbler) was present on
their old stake-outs. Take a torch if you want to see Horseshoe Bats in a small cave. The staff at the
hotel can arrange you a short trip to see Rafflesias in the nearby forest. Overall, I would spend there
only one day instead of two.
Mt Kinabalu Resort & Spa a.k.a. Perkasa Hotel, Kundasang
Car park in front of the hotel has Pygmy Ibon/White-eye on the pine trees. Well signposted from the
road Poring-Mount Kinabalu. Allow an hour or so, possibly when it rains at Mt Kinabalu.
Mt Kinabalu national park
Hotel: J&J Residence booked via booking.com. Good and very close to the National Park gates and
good inexpensive restaurant just outside NP gates. However, needs a car, as the hotel is down a very
steep slope. Rented car is also convenient for driving up and down the summit road – although taxis
Rafflesia keithii, Crocker Range
are available. Drive up, park, walk down, eventually take a taxi back to your car.
Logistics: This site really needs more than 3 days which I and most birding groups spend there,
perhaps 5. Many montane endemics are otherwise missed.
See the trip report of BOP or Kinabalu NP webiste for trail maps. Generally, birds are widespread,
thin on the ground and mobile, and encountered at random places along the trails. I checked trip
reports and chatted with birders which I encountered and friends who were there a month earlier
(Thanks Bert!) – and saw nothing at the given stake-outs and everything elsewhere. The only bird I
saw in the place 'it should be' was a female Whitehead's Trogon at the entrance of Silau-Silau/ Kiau
View Trail.
Weather is important in planning. Mornings are normally clear and enjoyed by hordes of tourists
watching sunrise from the summit of Mt Kinabalu. Soon afterwards, fog and rain begin to form on
the summit and descend lower with variable speed. Therefore do the highest trails early in the
morning: Bukit Ular, Mempening and Summit.
Timpohon Gate and Power Station area, especially rubbish bin at the car park, are good for Bornean
Whistling Thrush, many squirrels and apparently Gymnures ( these scurried past too fast to be sure).
Going on Summit Trail for Friendly Bush Warbler etc, best to start immediately when the Timpohon
Gate opens, for from ca. 8-9.00am crowds of noisy tourists fill these trail. It is prohibited to go past
Layang-Layang Shelter without the guide, but Friendly Bush Warbler and Mountain Black-eye are
before that, and spectacular pitcher plants around it.
Black-and-Red Broadbill family, Kinabatangan River
I heard Mountain Scops Owls very close at Timpohon Gate and in the gardens of the hotel, but no
visual observation. I saw several unidentified small owls flying over the road driving to Timpohon
Gate before sunrise, so the main road above Nepenthes Lodge may be the good bet.
Kota Kinabalu town
Hotel: I slept half of the first night after arrival at the Kk Suites Hotel, 98-100 Jalan Gaya, Kota
Kinabalu booked via hotels.com. Recommended. Food in the unnamed small restaurant nearby.
Logistics: Vicinity of Kinabalu Yacht Club/Kinabalu Golf Club is city beach close to the airport,
which has a group of Blue-naped Parrots, which apparently were introduced there. I was surprised to
see two Blue-naped Parrots at Sepilok, too.
Kota Kinabalu is surprisingly large and modern city. Beware of traffic jams. Note also, that it takes
ca 30 min by taxi or bus between domestic and international terminals.
Sepilok
Hotel: Sepilok B&B – recommended, also importantly within easy walking distance to the
rainforest entrance. There are Hooded Pittas on the grounds.
Logistics: Sepilok is recommended especially for the canopy walkway. Watch from the Bristlehead
tower. Avoid the tower if noisy macaques scare the birds around. Red Giant Flying Squirrel glides
around the bridge between two tower every evening, ca 30 min before dusk. Black-crowned Pitta is
around the base of the second tower. Also the forest itself is good for birds.
Buffy Fish Owl, Kinabatangan River
Kinabatangan
Hotel: Kinabatangan Jungle Camp – recommended, especially for the expertise of the owner Mr
Chong.
Logistics: The normal procedure is driving by boat along the river and estuaries. There are also
night boat rides for Buffy Fish Owls and sleeping daybirds, but I saw no mammals. Note that other
guides need some persuasion if you want to see real birds, rather than normal tourist sights like
numerous Proboscis Monkeys. The camp itself is visited by Storm's Stork (one tame) , Bearded Pigs
and Water Monitors.
Gomantong Caves
These caves are best visited in the afternoon to see flying bats and raptors, and can be done by taxi.
Allow 2-3 hours or so to see the cave, birds around, and bats flying off. I went for a day trip from
Kinabatangan Jungle Camp, when there was a heavy rain at Kinabatangan.
Danum Valley
Hotel: I stayed at Danum Valley Field Centre. If you book this place, make sure book the smaller
rooms, avoid the 48 bed dorms (hostel), which are noisy and long distance from the eating area.
Field Centre is somehow strange. The staff seems tuned to caring the small group of scientists and
many general tourists who are rather lost what to do. There is a long list of do's and don'ts which is
supposed to ensure that no ordinary tourist gets lost or eaten by a python. However, if you can do
Peregrine chasing Wrinkled-lipped Bats, Gomantong Caves
things on your own, not necessary inquiring if everything is prohibited or permitted, you can see
much around the place.
Logistics: I cannot give sensible stake-outs. Birds are moving and encountered in many places. It is
hit and miss, you see many gems, but you are constantly frustrated by how much you missed.
There is grid trail good for many species. Red Giant Flying Squirrel glides from the tallest tree on
the east side of the river, viewed from the suspended bridge going to the grid, every evening, ca 30
min before dusk.
Equally good is Waterfall Trail. The waterfall trail was a place for Blue-headed Pitta which I missed
– on the hillside just after the waterfall. I heard the pitta likely of this species earlier, on the hillside
above the path just before the path turns to a narrow ridge top before the descent to the waterfall,
but noisy group scared the bird. Don't forget the access road, where I seen eg. Short-toed Coucals
showing in the open. There are several arenas of Great Argus – right on the Coffin Trail, near
Waterfall trail and along the grid, among others. They are open places cleared of leaves and twigs.
There are night drives, which you need to book in advance because they fill with ordinary tourists.
They are run for general tourists, and you need to slightly push if you really want to see animals.
Note however, that as of 2014. the road from Lahad Datu to DVFC is well maintained gravel. A
number of staff brought the normal cars, including mini cars to DVFC. This means that one could
arrange with DVFC to bring a rented car (don't forget the lack of petrol stations), save on bus from
BVFC and make own night drives.
