Malaysia

Parit Jawa Estuary

Parit Jawa (Muar) is a small sleepy fishing village most famous for its "Asam pedas" fish dish, but it also has the highest population of the endangered Lesser Adjutant. Waders and shorebirds are abundant on the mudflats here. It became an attraction for the local and overseas birders and photographers coming here for the great view of the “Burung Botak”.

We will also bring you to the Lesser Adjutant nesting site at Batu Pahat and if time permits, a quick stopover at the Yong Peng Heronry where large populations of Purple Herons, Grey Herons and Black-crowned Night-herons nest there.
