Ms Nalini Lechumanon, Vice-President of FHCL gave her welcoming remarks to participants. 

Mr Andy Lee, President of WBCM introduced the Club to the participants. 

WBCM donated three (3) boxes of books and magazines to FHCL during this joint event. The official handover of donated books from WBCM, between Ms Nalini and Mr Andy. 

Mr Mark Ng, Vice-President of WBCM gave a talk on “Montane Birds of Fraser Hill.” The participants (around 50 including 15 members from WBCM) listening intently to Mr Mark Ng’s presentation as he took them through some of the endemic and resident species of Fraser Hill. The Spectacled Laughingthrush dropped by and “attended” the talk as well:)

WBCM literally walked the talk, since the birdwatching activity was next once the talk concluded. Mr Sanadure, a member of WBCM led the participants during walk as we headed towards the Hemmant Trail along the Valley Road which winds around the Golf Course of Fraser Hill.

Pre-walk briefing by Mr Dure, since our youngest participant was 11 years old. Dure showed where the birds were to the participants which included children of both primary and secondary school-going age, during the walk.
