  the bird list  
     

Dear Onkel Tan,

UMEA SWEDEN 15/4/1992
This is the birdlist I promised you, I have changed a few details since i wrote the preliminary list in Sandakan, but this is the final version (and also the one I'll send). The species you should focus on is Storms stork (very rare everywhere) and Wrinkled Hombill (Lower Kinabatangan is the only place in Sabah where it's seen often). I do believe that your camp will attract a continueing flow of birdwatchers, especially now since Craig Wilson have visited the place. Well I finally learned how to move in dense jungle and did reach 282 species seen in Sabah, a result that I'm satisfied with.

These days in the jungle-camp stand out as some of the finest in seven weeks of traveling in Sabah. You and your staff deserves all appreciation possible.

Per Ekerholm

BAT-SPECIES IN THE CAVES OF TULUG
(The bats were caught in mist-nets and identified)
- Greater sheat-tailed bat
- Black-bearded Tomb-bat
- Fawn's roundleaf bat
- Creagh's horseshoe bat

This Bird-list is in no meaning complete, absence of jungle--experience and a non-working tape-recorder explains partly the absence of several of the species that are assumed to be present in the area, however, this list may add some grains of salt to the total picture of the bird communities in the Lower Kinabatangan area.
