4 Days Birding Trips in Bromo Tengger Semeru NP and around Malang, East Java

We had 4 Days birding trips for couple clients from France to see Raptors in Malang, East Java.

Start in 29 June until 02 July 2019, we birded in 4 locations around Bromo Tengger Semeru National Park and Raden Suryo Greater Park Forestry.

Our clients spotted raptor in Bromo Tengger Semeru NP, East Java.

On the first day we were meet up in airport hotel in Juanda International Airport, Surabaya, East Java at 07:00 am. Then we drive to hotel in Malang near the national park.Arrived at around 11:00 am in hotel, check in and drops our luggage and keep our birding stuff.

Then we drive for a half hours to the first location in Bromo Tengger Semeru National Park.

The weather was so good in the locations where raptors usually recorded, but that day is Sunday in one of the popular national park in Indonesia where so many visitor came to holiday.

We tried walk and avoid the crowd while keep the eyes on the sky, searching for any raptors which may fly.

Until afternoon we just managed to see one species of raptor, Changable Hawk-eagle.

Then we were going back to the hotel for overnight.

On second day, after packed our breakfast we start move to second location in same national park.

This takes 3 hours drive time to reached it.

The altitude of the second locations lower than before, it's about 100-200 asl surrounding by lowland forest and plantation.
