Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserve

Have not been there for some time and thought I paid another visit before the migratory season is over. Hit pay dirt early when at the main hide just after the main bridge, spotted a Collared Kingfisher which was close enough for a nice shot. The best part was when we came back it was still there and this time with a partner. 2 for the price of one!

A bit disappointed that I didn’t see any woodpeckers or snake but was excited when some visitors informed that they saw a crocodile up on the bank just a short distance away. So we went crocodile hunting but couldn’t find it. In the end though, we managed to see 2 of them at the usual place under the main bridge.05-SBW_3776Then there are the usual monitor lizard which are often mistaken for the crocodile or worse still, Komodo Dragon. 04-SBW_3782Most time we see them in the water but high up in the tree?03-SBW_3793

Another animal that is always up in the tree – the cute little squirrel.12-SBW_3677

Spotted a fly on the ledge of the Tower and it didn’t fly away even when people moved nearby. Changed to a macro lens and got this close up.11-SBW_3704Wanted to take more shot of this since it was such a quiet and cooperative model but M was shouting excitedly about some bird on a tree and so when to take a look.  I think it is a Olive backed Sunbird but it was so far away and this is the best that I can managed. 10-SBW_3713

All in a rather fruitful morning out there.
