It was a nice quiet Monday morning too, at not many birds in sight. Throughout my whole morning, i bumped into a total of 3 bird photographers and the same student from National University of Singapore Life Sciences doing her final year dissertation field research on the squirrel population in Bidadari (variable and plantain) that i met the last time i was there on December 7. She was there from 7 am and still observing the squirrels by the time i left.

It was almost 1 pm when i decided to make my way back partly because the sky was also turning dark with the threat of potential rain (indeed later in rained). When i was about to leave, i saw a flock of 9-10 Black Baza's (only manage to take a picture with six of them in the sky, catching a thermal ). It got me thinking that this might the last time, this beautiful migratory birds might be able to a pit stop in this place, with Bidadari slated for development soon and the trees here to be cleared by next year. A very sad thought indeed.
