Little Egret is a resident migrant bird  in Malaysia, but I don't see it  here (Raub)  in other months except in the winter. Its habitat is at the mangroves and freshwater wetlands

Birding during Maal Hijrah 1435H Holiday

It rained last night, the road is all wet and muddy, so no road-bike training this morning. Went to my usual  spot for 2 hours birding at Padang Golf Raub. No new species, all the normal residence.
