This time I was greeted by a nice close Blue-throated Bee-eater by he lake as I made my way towards Woodpecker Avenue and the Kingfisher Trail where I had most of my luck the previous day. Actually I found the unnamed stretch of track south of the WPA/KT junction the best spot. Best sighting of the morning was undoubtedly a gorgeous Diard's Trogon but I also scored with a confiding Greater Racket-tailed Drongo, 2 Oriental Dwarf Kingfishers, Fiery Minivet, Grey-bellied Bulbul, Yellow-bellied Bulbul, 2 Buff-vented Bulbuls, a Hairy-backed Bulbul high up in the canopy as was a Maroon-breasted Philentoma and 2 mega Chestnut-backed Scimitar Babblers flew across the path. I added to my babbler list with a Grey-headed Babbler plus Ferruginous Babbler and Chestnut-winged Babbler.
Along the Kingfisher Trail a nabbed another Black-crowned Pitta, Raffles Malkoha and 3 showy Buff-rumped Woodpeckers.

After lunch at SFE we endured an uncomfortable 2.5 hour taxi transfer to Lahad Datu where after a bit of a phaff we found the Bike and Tours B&B. Lahad Datu is a bit of a dump but luckily we were at a superb B&B! Chestnut Munias were nesting on the balcony and I also has White-breatsed Woodswallows and Glossy Swiflets during a relaxing afternoon/evening rounded off with a superb meal.
