Initially when we arrived, the guards told us there wasn't a bird in sight. So we left and headed to Pantai Remis for a short picnic and some kite flying.
After our short picnic, we headed back, and I was a little worried that thay'd be no birds. But the moment our car (driven by a dear friend) entered the area, the amazing sight just .got my heart beating so fast, and I think I couldn't stop saying "OH my goodness...oh wow, oh my goodness....!!! " I can't quite describe the feeling
, it's beyond words, the sight I saw. Thousands of Migratory birds....thousands!!!!!!!!!!! :) :) :)
It's really unfortunate that I only still have my compact, and thus these blur shots followed by some videos which are blur too...but if you see the number of birds and listen to the sounds, you'll know why I went WOW WOW WOW!!!!
There were so many more interesting sights, such as the flying Terns, a pair of Brahminy kites on the ground with an Egret in between, Kingfishers, Godwit, Curlews, Plover, Orioles, Grey and Purple heron. Some shots in my friend's camera. I couldn't capture these in pictures due to camera limitations, but I will never forget this moment. It's forever captured in my mind. :). Forgot all about my girls, my girls were super excited at it all too.... I'm sure they'll never forget today either. (This place, is off limits to public, and only accessible once a year through Pesta Sayap, or through written request ahead of time.)
