        ... early morning mist yielded, it was in truth a beautiful morning. As the boat gathered speed heading upstream there appeared a definite chill in the air, or maybe we were just becoming more acclimatised. It was only a short while before we spotted a Pied Hornbill high in a tree, calling in a muffled bull like sound. Macaque Monkeys groomed themselves and each other high in the tree canopies, their tails hanging down like long pieces of hairy rope. We spotted ...

        ... returning to the sea to release a previous batch of hatchlings. About 30 little wriggling turtles held in what looked like a supermarket basket were released onto the sand to find their way in to the sea. We were told not too shine any torches and certainly flash photography was not allowed at anytime throughout the evening.

        ... just ceiling fans. The big fella is a little crook today - high temp and aching a truck load of drugs and afternoon of rest in the air conditioning. Another boat ride to spot monkeys, hornbills & we saw a female Orangutan in the wild! What a sight!! She was high up in the tree starting to make her nest for the evening, solitary creatures. Each night we say it can't get better, but it seems to! Wish you were ...
