They Are Backed at Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserve

Is the time of the year again... no, not Christmas but birding at Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserve (SBWR). The migratory birds are back to the reserve.

 I got a copy of very handy guide for birding in the reserve!
 Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserve
Tips on how to identify birds in the reserve is included. Just look at the size of the bird, their bill & their plumage.
Birding with Mr Desmond Lee  (Minister of State)
We have Mr Desmond Lee (Minister of State) joining us this morning too! Below are some of the animals we saw...
SBWR is probably the only place in Singapore to see a wild crocodile. The next time when you are here, try looking for them at the Main Bridge. They are very well camouflage, so try look for anything that looks like a floating log or tree trunk in the water. They are usually just at the water edge.
Red Shank with flag
 One of the many birds in the reserve. This Red Shank was with the colour flag X7. If you saw any birds that with flag, may report your sightings at Sungei Buloh Engraved Flag Sightings.
Green shank
 Looks very similar to Red Shank but with yellowish/green leg.
Marsh Sandpiper
Another sandpiper that we saw is Marsh Sandpiper. These birds will only be here for a limited time. Catch them while they are here or you will have to wait another year to see them again...
