Sumatra [2018]


Sumatra was our second stop in our year of travelling, we wanted a destination in Indonesia in June and the weather in Sumatra seemed favourable. With two new pitta’s and lots of other endemics this was an easy choice. Since we only allotted 10 days we chose to do western Sumatra with the best site for most endemics (Kerinci) and since we were travelling via Padang we added one of the offshore islands (Mentawai). Since we are still traveling this is a short trip report with our main findings and a rough annotated species list (most counts are incomplete and subspecies indication is missing). We really enjoyed travelling and birding in Indonesia again. Our next leg of the trip will be West Papua but we will definitely return for more Indonesia exploration in the next few years!
