So here are some more pics from the beach below our hotel in Kuala Terengganu.
So, where are all these kites from?
Birds…well, I didn’t actually go birdwatching, but I had my binoculars. There were ten or so Little Terns around the harbour, a dark morph Reef Egret, a kite of the living kind – a Brahminy, and a pair of adult White-bellied Sea-eagles with a nest and this fully fledged youngster below, high in the casuarinas. Nice to know these magnificent eagles can nest in the trees right above the kite sellers and parked cars, next to a large hotel, and still bring a young to the edge of independence. You can see the nest in the second photo below, with the young waiting, hoping to be fed.
