This blog records birding adventures of a not-so-secret group of Singapore birders. The main cast is Con Foley, Danny Lau, Lau Jia Sheng and Tan Kok Hui. We mainly bird in Singapore. We also occasionally bird around the world.
Con, Danny and I started the day's birding at Marina East. Wader-wise, there were 1 Sanderling, 2 Red-necked Stints, 3 Common Sandpipers and 5 Malaysian Plovers. Other birds present were 6 Paddyfield Pipits, 5 House Crows and 2 Eurasian Tree Sparrows.

Moving on to Sungei Buloh, we were disappointed at the low wader diversiy: just Whimbrels, PGPs, Redshanks, Greenshanks; but a Lesser Adjutant appeared out of nowhere to make our day!
Raptor-wise, we had 1 OHB, 1 BWK, 1 Brahminy Kite, 2 WBSE.
