I found the whole area frustrating to bird because apart from the RIC the birding is limited to roadsides only and the road is busy. We did find a spot to check a few km further on where I finally scored with a nice pair of Bornean Leafbirds plus 2 Fiery Minivets and Raffles Malkoha.
Dropping back down into KK via a roadside local cafe we returned the car and after a wait and a traditional meal (McDs!) we caught our plane over to Sandakan and the lowlands of eastern Sabah for the next phase of the trip. We arrived after dark so took a taxi to Sepilok Forest Edge Resort where we checked in, had dinner and looked forward to what tomorrow would bring.
