 Sumatra and West Java have become popular birding destinations in the last couple of years. I first visited the area in 1988 but too briefly to see most of the specialities so had long intended to return. When my friend Janos decided to go we soon raised a good team and booked the flights, leaving the itinerary to evolve as the trip progressed. The writing of this report has been greatly delayed due to higher priorities, so I will mostly describe our experiences and sightings as the logistics are well-documented now, eg see http://groups. yahoo.com/ group/orientalbi rding/files/ Birding%20Snippe ts%20%28Sumatra% 29/. We saw some great birds, such as White-winged Duck, Schneider’s and Graceful Pittas, Bay Owl, Bonaparte’s and Salvadori’s Nightjars, 5 species of frogmouth, Javan Cochoa and both Blue-tailed Trogons. The only major misses were Sumatran Cochoa and Peacock-pheasant.The timing was chosen as supposedly the optimum for seeing Schneider’s Pitta, although we subsequently learnt that a few weeks later may be better, at least for the more readily seen young birds. The only other birders we encountered on Sumatra were Rob Hutchinson and Bram Demeulemeester at Way Kambas and James Heng at Kerinci. The route worked well except that we did not book a flight back to Jakarta from Padang because we were unsure how long would be needed at Kerinci, and then found we could not get a confirmed flight so decided to take a taxi to Way Kambas. This journey took 2 full days, longer than expected, so it would have been better to have flown.

TRANSPORT

We met at Padang, Sumatra. Richard, Janos and Attila flew with Malaysian Airlines via KL and Jakarta. Barry and I flew from Singapore to Padang with Lion Air.We used taxis/cars thoughout, apart from the ferry from Sumatra to Java.

ACCOMMODATION

Stayed in cheap losmen/hotels throughout, eating good local food. The only guides employed were Pak Subandi to show us the Pale-headed (Short-tailed) Frogmouth site at Kerinci and the Tapan Road, Dedi to show us the White-winged Ducks at Way Kambas and Indra Ferdinand, indra007fecote at yahoo.com, for owling at Cibodas.

MISCELLANEOUS

We obtained a visa, valid for 30 days, on arrival at Padang airport, for US$ 25.International Departure tax was 100,000 Rp.There was rain on most days - usually only as afternoon showers, some very heavy, Gng Gede was the wettest. No significant health issues were experienced, the only real problem being leeches at Way Kambas.Initially it was quite a slog up Kerinci but after a few days, I found it and Gede fairly easy.

ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS

Many thanks for their help to Nick Brickle, Dave Sargeant and Filip Verbelen, and to Rich Fairbank for comments on the draft report.

NOTES ON SITES

The gateway to Gunung Kerinci in Kerinci Seblat NP is Sungai Penuh, 275 km from Padang, with food and  accommodation at Pak Subandi’s losmen/homestead at the tea plantation village of Kersik Tuo. We paid 500,000 Rp each for the 10 nights half-board. It is useful to have transport available to take you to the several km to the start of the trail up the mountain and collect you when you come down. We retained the vehicle we chartered from Padang. The trail up the mountain is straightforward and pretty good. The other site to visit for the lower elevation birds is Tapan Road which takes nearly 2 hours to reach from Pak’s place – no serious trekking involved as birding is essentially along the road.To quote Nick Brickle: options for Kerinci to Way Kambas direct are all pretty painful. The best bet is probably a very early start from Kerinci, drive or bus to Padang (6-8 hours), fly to Jakarta, then fly the same evening (if you are lucky) to Bandar Lampung (no direct flight from Padang), hire a taxi from the airport and make the 2-3 hour drive to Way Kambas. Alternatively, get a car in Jakarta, drive to Carita (via Pulau Dua for the white-eye) then on to Lampung, via the ferry at Merak. Perhaps best to get a taxi for the day, leave early, do Pulau Dua and on to Carita the same day, then get another car, or a bus, when ready, to take you to Merak, get the boat, then a bus on the other side to Bandar Lampung, and a bus/taxi from there to Way Kambas. The taxi might want to drop you in Tridatu, the town outside the gate (you reach a big arch-way on the main road with concrete elephants playing football - very tasteful - turn left here, through the arch – the gate, known as Plang Hijau, is only a few m further on). After this an unsurfaced track leads c.15 km to Way Kanan. You might want to arrange a pick-up date, although this could probably be arranged from Way Kanan via the guards.At Way Kanan (meaning the Kanan river) there is a nice place to stay but no cooking facilities (its all self-service) or mosquito nets. The guards do have cooking facilities and you could use them (they may even offer to cook your food). There is no food, so will need to bring it or ask them to fetch it for you. There are small shops selling rice, instant noodles, corned beef, sardines etc in Tridatu but if you want beer or a wider range of food, its best to stop in ‘Metro’ on the way (about an hour before Way Kambas) or at the supermarket on a side-road to the right, just before the big mosque. Once at Way Kanan all the action is within walking distance so no need to keep a car. Walk the approach road to the lodge and the Loop Trail, and do a boat trip to Rawa Gajah swamp with a guide, early morning or late afternoon, to see White-winged Duck. The best guide is 'Dedi' who knows where and how to see the ducks.We visited Palau Dua, between Carita and Jakarta, to look for Javan White-eye, without success - it is not a very reliable site for it. We did see Javan Plover in fishponds near the start of the trail to the island, and Janos saw a White-capped Munia on the island. The instructions to get there are in the Birding Indonesia (Jepson and Ounsted) book, but briefly you go on the Jakarta-Merak toll rd, off at Serang Timor exit after 75km, turn right onto the main rd to Serang and right again towards Banten Luhur. After 1km turn left at T jnctn and quickly right in a small town. Continue north for 7km and 500m before Banten turn left over railway and drive 5km to Sawah Luhur. Park under the big tree on left and take the trail winding through fishponds to Palau Dua island. We took a local to show us the way, which was a good idea.

DAILY LOG

26/6      Left Padang at 1600 in a taxi, reached Pak Subandi’s Homestead at Kersik Tuo at 21.30. It was locked-up for the night but we eventually made our presence known and occupied 3 rooms.          

 

27-29/6 Up at 05.00, slow climb from 1800m to above Camp Cochoa (first shelter) at 2400m on Kerinci, seeing Rusty-breasted Wren-Babbler and Pink-headed Fruit-dove. In the evening Pak took us to his stake-out for Pale-headed Frogmouth but no success, only hearing Mt Scops. In the next 2 days on the mountain we saw Salvadori’s Pheasant and Nightjar, Wedge-tailed Green-pigeon, Collared Owlet, Sumatran Trogon, Black-browed Barbet, Sunda Minivet, Shiny Whistling-thrush, Indigo Flycatcher, Rufous-vented Niltava, Blue Nuthatch, Sunda Bulbul, Sunda Bush-warbler, Sunda Warbler, Long-billed Wren-babbler and Long-tailed Sibia but only heard the Frogmouth and no sign of Schneider’s Pitta or Sumatran Cochoa.

 

30/6      Up at 0400, drove to Tapan Road at 04.45, arriving at 06.30. Soon saw Sumatran Drongo and Sunda Treepie, Sunda Forktail and White-headed Munia, then took an hour to find and observe Graceful Pitta which gave cracking views. The rest of the day was spent walking down the road from Km 19 to 27 with two long sessions on steep banks for Ferruginous Wood-Partridge and the stunning Marbled Wren-babbler. Other notable birds were Grey-breasted Jungle-Flycatcher and Rufous-browed Flycatcher, the endemic Cream-striped and Spot-necked Bulbuls and Blue-masked and Sumatran Leafbirds, and Sunda Laughingthrush. A Sunda Pin-tailed/Sumatran Green Pigeon was seen in flight at the bridge along with a Blyth’s Hawk-eagle. 7 ticks and no rain made this an exceptional day! 

 

1-3/7     Back to Kerinci at dawn but still no luck with Schneider’s, trekked up to 2700m with stops – some bird photos but nothing new. On way down, heard Cochoa calling for c.2 mins at 13.55 but could not see it. Spent an hour there but only saw Long-tailed Sibias. Lower down RF had seen a female pitta briefly while J and A had heard one for the first time, near the waterfall. At dusk tried for Salvadori’s NJ at the forest edge, then Short-tailed Frogmouth in the stream-bed. Saw a Barred Eagle-owl, then the Frogmouth, and heard Spotted Wood-owl. Early next day went to where pitta had called but no response – did see Brown-winged Whistling-thrush and Sunda Robin in the river-bed, then a pair and a juv Salvadori’s Pheasant only 10m away. Further up, taped in Sumatran Trogon and encountered a large bird party but no joy with the cochoa. Sheltered from the rain, then down to the pitta area but only good sighting was a single Agile Gibbon.Up to Cochoa area in 30 mins next day! Called in a Red-billed Partridge but could not see it. Back downhill, saw an all-brown Shiny Whistling-thrush, then a pristine adult, followed by Lesser Shortwing and Snowy-browed Flycatcher. Spent the afternoon with BW in the pitta area, only seeing Pygmy Wren-babbler and a male pheasant, then a male pitta started calling at 17.00 and gave some response to play-back. We saw it hopping across the path near the ravine edge, and followed it moving rapidly downhill before perching in the fork of a tree on the near-side of the ravine. It flew, then called from higher up but was not seen again until late dusk when it was found roosting on a small rock and we all got good views. Back at the losmen we celebrated with a few drinks… 

 

4/7        Up at 0400 and drove to Tapan Road at dawn. Tried for Peacock-pheasant but only heard it on a steep hillside. Lots of birds, the best being Gold-whiskered Barbet Long-tailed Broadbill, Black Laughingthrush, Scaly-breasted and Grey-bellied Bulbuls and Grey-breasted Spiderhunter. Left at 16.00, hoping to spot a Peacock-Pheasant on the road but no joy.

5/7        Last attempt for Cochoa and Red-billed Partridge on Kerinci but only managed to hear the latter. Janos saw a female Pitta on the trail but there was nothing new. Left at 15.00 for the waterfall trail – impressive waterfall but only notable birds were Sumatran Whistling-thrush and Waterfall Swift. Singapore birder James Heng was at the losmen tonight – the first birder we’d seen. Pak arranged for a vehicle to come from Padang to drive us to Way Kambas as we could not get a confirmed flight to Jakarta (by phone).

6-7/7     07.10 to 22.45 drove 550 km to Lahat, night at Hotel Cendrawash – Changeable Hawk-eagle and Black Eagle on way. Left at 08.00, after puncture repair, on the badly pot-holed Trans-Sumatra Highway. Long queues at petrol stations due to fuel shortage. Could not find turn-off to Way Kambas for a long time as driver seemed incapable of following directions, but eventually made it, reaching the village at 20.00. Tried to get to Way Kanan in the reserve but rangers would not allow it as there was noone there, so we had to stay at a decent nearby lodge – 100,000Rp for 2 double beds and a shower.

8/7        Allowed in at 06.30 for the 13 km drive to Way Kanan – 5 Crested Fireback and a Great Argus on the way. Birded the main track, then the leech-infested Loop Trail, with good views of Banded Pitta, Red-billed Malkoha and Ferruginous Babblers. Twin-bedded rooms cost 60,000 Rp; gave Teddy money to go into Tridatu on his motorbike to buy food for us. Siesta 11.00-15.00, then main track – Red-naped Trogon, Red-crowned Barbet, bulbuls and babblers, with Black-thighed Falconet and Brown Hawk-owl pre-dusk in the clearing. Night-birding 1900-22.30 gave Gould’s and Sunda Frogmouths but only heard Large Frogmouth and Reddish Scops.

9/7        Canoed up river at 06.00 with guide Dedi and walked to extensive open swamp to look for White-winged Duck – lots of Cinnamon-headed Pigeon and Blue-rumped Parrots but no ducks so continued to another duck-free swamp. Dedi waded off through the swamp, followed by all but me as it started raining heavily. They returned with tales and photos of 5+ White-winged Ducks, while I only saw 1 Lesser Adjutant and a Bearded? Pig. Dedi reluctantly took me back to the river where a male W-w Duck was visible but soon disappeared into the forest. Back at the swamp the others were photo-ing a Small Blue Kingfisher. We returned to base to find Rob Hutchinson and Bram Demeulemeester had arrived. Spent late afternoon on the main track, seeing Bonaparte’s Nightjar in flight and perched on a branch in an almost vertical stance, calling. After supper, had stunning views of Large Frogmouth.

10/7      I went back up the river with Rob, Bram and Dedi to the duck site. 5 were seen quite close but soon flew off. We had 2 flight views of a honking male in the next hour but nothing more. Surprisingly, we only saw 2 Cinnamon-headed Pigeon and Blue-rumped Parrots this time. In the afternoon, looked over the river from the dilapidated jetty but only saw White-bellied Woodpecker of note then walked the main track. The others had gone ahead to beyond the bridge at 2.5km and found roosting Reddish Scops and Great Argus at dusk. After supper Barry, Rich and I went back along the track to look for Bay Owl, the one missing mega. At the bridge we spot-lit a spotted cat, possibly a Leopard Cat, on the concrete bridge wall. Very quiet but we finally heard a response to the Bay Owl tape after another km, and went into the forest. We found the owl perched on a horizontal branch in an open area, giving an awesome view, bobbing up and down occasionally. I had not bothered to take my camera as I did not expect to see it while Barry took many shots but his flash was defective. We left the owl still on the same perch and quickly walked back the 3.5 km to get Janos and Attila. I returned to the site with them, picking-up Rob and Bram at the bridge – the owl had moved but we relocated it, perched photogenically on a vertical liana this time.

 

11/7      06.00-08.00 on the river, paddling up and drifting down – only notable sights were Black Hornbill and Yellow-throated Marten. Had ordered a car for 09.00 but it did not arrive till 09.45. Long drive to the ferry terminal on bad roads, arriving at 14.30, after a few short stops. Intended to take the speedcraft to Java but found ourselves on the car ferry, with everyone else – cheap but slow, 90 mins to Java but then had to wait 20 mins for a docking-berth. Speedcraft takes 45 mins. Would have been good for sea-watching but only saw a few Bridled and Black-naped Terns, a single Great Frigatebird, an unidentified dark petrel and a Great-billed Heron. We hired a bemo to take us to Carita which took over 2 hours. Intended to stay at recommended Black Rhino Hotel but there was only an info office of that name so stopped at hotel before that. It turned out to be noisy, full of mozzies and had no water – the worst accommodation of the trip. Had a good meal at a fish restaurant up the road.

 

12/7      Walked on the waterfall trail in the dark. Janos spot-lit a Javan Frogmouth but it soon flew off. No Javan Owlet but a Slow Loris was a good consolation. After dawn soon saw the endemic Black-banded Barbet, White-breasted and Crescent-chested Babblers and Grey-cheeked Tit-Babbler. Continued to the waterfall – a non-event – then back to the hotel to pack and move next door to the Pani isan Hotel (tel 0253 802818), a much better establishment – 150k for 3 rooms. Had lunch here then at 15.30 we returned to the waterfall trail and walked to the Reserve entrance where the primary forest started. Waited till 18.00 then went back to the frogmouth site but the bird was unresponsive. Returned to the primary forest to try for Owlet and Frogmouth, to no avail but did see a Palm Civet. A Frogmouth called back at the original site and was eventually spotted and photo’d, and an Owlet called briefly. Celebrated with a good prawn meal.

 

13/7      We chartered a vehicle for 800K to take us to Jakarta at 04.30. Usual delays so did not leave till 05.00. First stop was Palau Dua at 06.30. We engaged a local to lead us 1.5km through the shrimp farms, with Savanna Nightjars hunting over adjacent fields. Had to walk bare-foot through ankle-deep mud to get on to the island and then 700m through mangroves to the watch-tower. Despite a thorough search, there was no sign of Javan White-eye, only Black-winged Starling, Scarlet-headed Flowerpecker and Ruby-cheeked Sunbird of note, with a single White-capped Munia for Janos. We watched 9 Javan Plover in the shrimp farms on the walk back. Drove to Jakarta airport 09.30-12.00, ate, changed money, then tried to locate a recommended cheap hotel as we fancied a night on the town. As we could not find it, we went to Maura Angke to look for Sunda Coucal. This was very disappointing: the boardwalk had collapsed, the watch-tower was unsafe, the two DENR employees were unhelpful and went back to sleep, and there were no birds. A 3 tick-dip day! We drove to Cibodas via Bogor in very heavy traffic, taking over 3 hours, and eventually found Freddy’s homestay, taking 2 rooms with 6 beds for 150K Rp.   

 

14/7      Told we had to get permit to enter NP from office – a comical pantomime as the guy seemed unable to count high enough for permits for 5 people for 3 days. Entered Gede NP (1300m elevation) at 07.45, walked to Aer Panas (2150m) where Janos spotted an imm. Javan Cochoa, my no. 1 target here. Unfortunately, it didn’t stop for long or return. Other notable sightings today were Sunda Cuckoo-shrike, Sunda Bulbul, Javan Whistling-Thrush, Sunda Forktail, Rufous-tailed Fantail Chestnut-backed Scimitar-babbler, Pygmy Tit and White-flanked Sunbird. To Cibereum waterfalls (1625m) at 17.45 and at dusk, c.18.05, a Salvadori’s Nightjar flew and hawked from a rock-ledge. Tried for Javan Owlet on the way down – called very close but could not see it. Went to Botanical Gardens with Freddy’s son Indra and saw a juv Sunda Scops. A good day!

 

15/7      04.30 breakfast, up to the owlet site with Barry and Rich. Bird called very close in the forest but always flew before we could see it. Then it moved to 2 or 3 tall trees by the trail; after a long tape duel in daylight, Barry finally spotted it perched some 15-20m up. It eventually flew off but was still calling when Janos and Attila came past at 09.30 – they spent 90 mins trying to see it. This was to be the only tick of the day for me as I couldn’t find the Trogon or Sunda Thrush. Saw Brown-throated Barbet at the top of the zigzag path above the junction, before returning to Freddy’s for a siesta. Janos and Attila were there, not feeling well, but had seen Javan Hawk-eagle, Spotted Crocias and Chestnut-bellied Partridge. We abandoned the plan to go owling due to continual rain.

 

16/7      I was woken by Rich leaving for the summit (where he saw Volcano Swiftlet) at 03.00, followed by a Japanese group also staying at Freddy’s. Up at 05.00, spent early morning at Km 2-4 looking for Sunda Thrush but only seeing Sunda Robin of note. Then tried for the Trogon without success, nearly photo’d Javan Tesia but it was disturbed by one of the many hikers going up and down the trail (it now being a Saturday and the end of the school hols). Afternoon in the Botanical Gardens and Km 2-4, before sheltering from a thunder-storm. Found that the others had seen the Trogon. To the Botanical Gardens with Indra after dinner to check-out his “different”  Scops-owl – saw 2 young perched together with obvious yellow irises, but no adult. Then found an adult Sunda Scops some way off, with deep red iris.

 

17/7      Up at 03.15, fresh fruit salad and tea from Freddy. Trekked to junction 03.30 - 04.15 and upwards till 06.00 hoping to hear Woodcock and see Sunda Thrush – no joy (like Rich yesterday). Did hear a few calls of a Cochoa before going down to the Trogon area where I eventually taped one in for a few mins. Went down to Freddy’s at 08.45 as Barry, Rich and I had agreed to depart for Jakarta at 10.00 – encountered 100s of trekkers coming up. Farewell to Janos and Attila who were staying on. We were soon in a traffic jam, taking 30 mins to do 1 km, then made good progress, as the road the other way was closed by the police, until we had a puncture, but we reached the airport after 2h30m – the driver had taken 7h the previous Sunday! We all arrived home the next day. 

 

Janos wrote: When you left we climbed to the top and saw the Volcano Swiftlets, had Tawny-breasted Parrotfinch at 
three different places plus a family party of Mountain Serin. Also saw a pair of Cochoa brilliantly(I have some pictures)
 Heard the Woodcock VERY close two times but could not get a glimpse, frustrating. Next day we concentrated on
 Indra’s Sunda Thrush breeding site where Attila had a good but brief view of one but was so happy and excited to
 tell me that the bird flew...depressing for me. Tried two more times there but not a sniff. Saw different Scops owls - 
god knows how Javan looks - in the Mortensen photo guide the picture is not Javan. On last two days tried for the
 Owlet dawn and evening but there was heavy rain most of the time, so no success. Left Gede on 20th evening.
