Conclusion

There you go, the complete list of winners for the Fraser’s Hill International Bird Race 2022 and, once again, a huge congratulations to everyone that won.

And I would also like to thank everyone for taking part and making this event a success, especially the foreign teams that came down and the locals from Kuala Lumpur, Petaling Jaya, Penang and Singapore.

Till then, I hope to see more participants in the next Fraser’s Hill International Bird Race 2023, which will be held at the same venue. Dates will be announced once I get confirmation from the organisers—meanwhile, happy birding.
