MNS members, raptor afficionadoes and birdwatchers from the northern region are hereby invited to join them on the above dates. It's not often opportunity like this surfaces for folks in and around the northern region, why not make a bee-line to the sites above and get a detailed low down on raptors and birds in general for the guru themselves.

Depending on the level of interests and distribution of raptors in the area, we may be organising a second Raptor workshop here in Miri during the autumn migration Aug/Sep 2010.
