Raptor Watch @Tanjung Tuan 26 March 2011
Hike up Tanjung Tuan.
A MNS member at work, guarded the left area.
At 1205pm, we spotted the first raptor flying from the horizon. It was seen as a small little dot.
The sight of the raptor was getting bigger as it flown towards the lighthouse.
We cheered happily. It was such a beautiful sight, watching the raptor coming from the far horizon, and towards us. There were less than 20 raptors. We could saw one flying low, above us. It was so amazing getting upclose with an eagle. This experience was so different from our last year visit, when we only spotted them gliding and circling above the sky.
Hiking down to the beach. The steps to the beach are very steep. I did not handle it very well. I felt my chest tightened and I was wheezing. Prior to that, a hike to Tanjung Tuan light house, made it worse.
It has been a year since our last visit. The beach is still as clean and quiet.
There are no toilet facilities here. After having a fun splash, the kids have to hike up, wet and dirty.
