WBCM Fraser Hills Trip on 19 and 20th May 2018

Birding @ Fraser Hills is really relaxing with its cool weather!  Exciting with good birds and most of
All great company.
A group of 20 eager birders gathered at Puncak Inn for a 2 days one night birding trip.
The group was divided in 3 groups with 2 leaders & 5 members. We flagged off around 2.30pm on 19th May 2018 and each group went off to explore their own birding sites.
All were exhausted after hours of walking , searching, waiting,  photo shooting and discussing. After a night's rest after dinner on Saturday, we welcomed another fruitful day on Sunday.
After a night rest, all were looking fresh. Off to individual sites again after Sunday breakfast on 20th May Morning,
And……all the excitement starts again till 1 pm.
