Animal of the Month

Welcome to Animal of the Month for September 2015. Every month, we will announce our favourite animal that has been featured on the blog at some point during the month.

Which animal has been our favourite this month?

Contenders
Bornean Tree-Hole Frog
Wallace's Hawk Eagle
Collared Kingfisher
Stork-billed Kingfisher
Rhinoceros Hornbill
Buffy Fish Owl
Lantern Bug


Winner: Buffy Fish Owl
September featured all the birds from the Borneo trip which means another tough decision for AotM. But the Buffy Fish Owl was definitely the most exciting bird of the trip, mainly because it was the one we most wanted to see. The circumstances in which we saw it also added to the speciality. It was just after we had finished our evening meal when we got a shout from our guide, Shirou, that there was one right next to the lodge. We also managed to get very close; it was a very special moment.
