A park of many returns

Malkoha in flight
Location : Paya Point

'Tiger Butterfly'
Location : Provinsi Yellow Palm
 This morning seemed exceptional.  I had a walkabout at the park between 8-9 am  and upon reaching the Paya point  met many surprises.  Firstly, I noticed the flight of the Chestnut-breasted Malkoha as it changed places to a nearby tree. Secondly, it was slightly more than a year ago that the 'Tiger butterfly' visited the oleina flowers here.  Its re-appearance was spent sometime at the flowers of a creeper in the wet and swampy area of  Paya point.  Unfortunately its wings were badly damaged and the real beauty of why I call it the 'Tiger Butterfly' was not clearly illustrated.  However, please go to this link to see the true beauty of this butterfly among the list of pictures here... The Black -headed Bulbul after missing in action for quite sometime decided to show itself too at the same location.  The striking yellow body contrasted with the forest greenery.  Climbing up the Cempedak Hill, I was greeted by the Yellow-vented Bulbul, a female Green Pigeon and a male Chestnut-breasted Malkoha.  Today's brief walkabout was comforting because it re-inforced confidence in me on the planting plan of the park with its linkages of forested or green passageways allowing for the return of many birds and butterflies to the park.
