Pasir Ris is a bird haven and I hope it continues to stay that way although with the continuous non stop construction, I am fearful of this.
Here are just some of the birds during a 2 hours walk from Drive 1 to the Pasir Ris Park one hot afternoon last week.
Starting from Sungei Tampines, the ever present magnificent Grey Heron flying so close to the HDB flats
A little bird that is now a permanent resident. Little Terns are a joy to watch as they swooped down on high to pick the fish from the river.
The parakeets seemed to have invaded the East. They are now abundant in Changi, East Coast and Pasir Ris with big flocks of them.
The Collared Kingfisher is another very commonly seen bird in Singapore. At Bedok Town Park a few weeks ago, there were many of them and likewise on this walk there were a number of them over at Sungei Tampines and in the park itself.
And the family of Spotted Wood Owl is still there despite the recent pruning of trees by Nparks
Didn’t spot any woodpecker this time round though. Just many hornbills but they were too far away for a decent shots.
