With prior arrangement, especially for the foreigners, I can be your guide during your stay at this place. Some interesting point to consider:-

Kuala Gula Bird Sanctuary is fortunate to have the Milky Stork and Lesser Adjutant, both globally-threatened species, grace its shores.
A variety of waders 'wintering' here are also present. Some of the common waders include Whimbrel, Lesser Golden Plover, Bar-tailed Godwit, Common Redshank, Common Greenshank and Terek Sandpiper. The beautiful white egrets, namely Great Egret, Little Egret and Intermediate Egret are here too. Sighting the globally-threatened Chinese Egret is rare but a possibility.
Kuala Gula Bird Sanctuary is also a rich breeding ground for herons such as Little Heron, Purple Heron and Grey Heron. A few bitterns can be seen along with various species of terns and gulls, sometimes seen perching on boundary poles of cockle beds, lying in wait for a fish or two.
If time permits, a walk on a gravel road (1-2km) running along the mangrove, starting at the most north- western end of the fishing village can turn up colourful species like the Black-capped Kingfisher, Common Kingfisher, Stork-billed Kingfisher and White-throated Kingfisher. Other birds such as munias, woodpeckers, bee-eaters, tailorbirds, sunbirds and a few resident raptors such as Crested Serpent-Eagle and Brahminy Kite can be seen.
Other wildlife in the area include otters, Silvered Leaf Monkeys, Long-tailed Macaques, Bottle-nosed and Ridge-backed Dolphins, Wild Pig, bats and civets. Reptilian delights present are Malayan Water Monitor, Clouded Monitor, pythons and mangrove snakes.
