On our sixth night drive in Tabin we saw...

... among other things, a Bornean slow loris moving at indecorous speed across the bare branch of a tree, returning from a tuft of leaves at the branch's tip which it had been investigating.

Driving back, in the syrupy light of dawn, there were rufous-bellied and changeable hawk-eagles and a bat hawk perched in roadside trees and the forest throbbed with gibbons greeting the day.

A day through which, having lamped for most of the night, I plan to sleep.
