Admiralty Park - North Most Park of Singapore

Located not far from the Causeway - the 1st road link between Singapore & Peninsula Malaysia, Admiralty Park is the north most park of Singapore. Admiralty Park consist of several different habitats, a river, mangrove, secondary forest, grassland & a fresh water pond. This is also a good place for birding too!
An Ashy tailorbird was seen near the mangrove area
White throated kingfisher taking the top of the pole as a vantage point before hunting
The weather today is really hot, these sparrows is taking cover too.
A beautiful White-eye
An female Olive-backed sunbird
Asian Glossy Starling
Another curious sparrow looking at my camera
A not so welcome 'wildlife' & pest too.
Other than birds, this park is also home to many insects & flowers.

This chick was seen running around the ginger plants.

Dose this look like the famous bridge across River Kwai??
If you are visiting Admiralty Park, don't miss out the Waterfront that just across the road after the Admiralty Park. The building at the back is no longer Singapore but Johor Bahru of Malaysia.
I really wish that visitors do not leave behind any rubbish.
Is quite a hazy day...
Kite flying is not allowed as stated on the sign, perhaps is too close to Tengah Airbase?
