Recently on the 8th of May my son-in-law took me to Pulau Redang off the coast of Trengganu for a weekend. Apart from basking under the sun and bathing in the cool waters of the South China Seas, I still managed to go around the resort looking for birds. Sad to say, I was unlucky not to find any birds at all, if there was, it was too high up on the trees and beyond the capabilities of my camera. Anyway, on the beach, I managed to get this small bird 'kelicap' into my lens.
I noticed, its close cousins on the mainland have somewhat dull feathers. But here on this island, its colours were very bright and better looking. Somehow, this bird feeds on nectar too from the small flowers by the sea-side.
And I am sorry the photos are not very clear!
