Lor Halus, Pasir Ris Park 29Dec18

From KH

Danny, JS and I started at Halus today for the Cotton Pygmy-goose. Sure enough, it was still around, but on the Punggol side and then later, on the Coney Island side, too far away for any decent photo.

These Red-breasted Parakeets were close enough for a couple of photos.
