In conjunction with World Migratory Bird Day, MNS Kuching Branch Bird Group will be organizing a bird watching trip to Kg. Chupak on 9 May 2010 (Sunday). 
One of the nearest and most extensive rice fields around Kuching area, Kg. Chupak/Skudup attract great number of migratory and wetland birds.A number of interesting sightings have come out of the area including Sand Martin (1st record for Borneo for nearly a century), Greater Painted-Snipe (1st for Sarawak), Red-necked Phalarope, Blue-breasted Quail, Black-winged Stilt and Chinese Pond Heron. 
During last weekend visit by one of our members, it was found that there are still quite a number of migratory birds there.  So why not come over to join us for a fun Sunday as we celebrate World Migratory Bird Day with people around the world on the 8-9 May 2010.

HOW TO GET THERE  Drive up the Kuching/Serian road, passing Siburan town, 18 mils (Jong’s Crocodile Farm) and Beratok town, 22 miles (limestone quarry is opposite the town).  Drive further along the road for 2 more miles and you will pass a Shell petrol station on your left.  Tapah town is just a kilometer along the road from Shell station.  So slow down!  Turn into Tapah town and meet at the road side in front of Taman Rekresis Tapah (Town Park) which is next to the Tapah Chinese Primary School.  Please be there by 7.15am sharp. Those who are late will have to find their way to Chupak themselves.

TO BRING Please bring along your binocular, bird guides, pocket-size note pad, hat, sun block and umbrella.  Please also remember to wear dull-coloured clothes.
