Tree Top Walk @ Windsor Nature Park

Due to the on-going construction & survey work in the park, I'm not exactly sure and confuse which are the trail that is still accessible. I'm thinking of bringing my foreign friend later this month to this  place so is good to have a recce trip before that.

 Even with this map, is not easy to tell which part of the trail is affected.

 Good to be able to see such a big tree in this tiny island of Singapore!

The trail to Tree Top Walk is suitable for all ages as boardwalk is constructed on a otherwise challenging part of the trail.

This is the entrance to the Tree Top Walk also serve as the traffic control to limit the number of people at any one time that stay on the suspended bridge 25m above the forest floor.

 This is the first of its kind in the region! The bridge only allow one direction traffic.

Do take note to keep away or hide your food in your back pack when crossing the bridge. Else the 'illegal' toll collector will just grab it from you.
Long-tailed macaque
Unfortunately, my bottled water also become the target. The monkey just grab it from my back pack after I walk pass it.
Blue-Winged Leafbird (Chloropsis cochinchinensis)
Saw this Blue Wing leaf bird high up on the tree. Can't get a better angle due to the small opening in the forest.
Common Tailorbird (Orthotomus sutorius)
 Managed to take a shot of this very active and small Common Tailor bird.
Olive-Winged Bulbul (Pycnonotus plumosus)
 This is one of the bulbul that only can be found in the forest - Olive Wing Bulbul.
Asian Glossy Starling (Aplonis panayensis)
 Family of 3 Asian Glossy Starling perch on the same branch. The on the right is the juvenile.
Javan Myna (Acridotheres javanicus)
Although Javan myna has adapted to survive in the urban area, they have no problem living in the forest too.
Blue Jay (Graphium evemon eventus)
 A very beautiful Blue Jay butterfly by the stream.
Ikan aruan
 There are lots of fishes in the stream including this Snakehead that about 30cm long.
Long-tailed macaque
Different from the troop of monkey that I saw on the Tree Top Walk, this troop rather stay away from contact and find their own food.
