As the end draw's closer for Bidadari as a bird santuary, i took leave today and headed down to this magical place. Not surprisingly, i counted at least 30 birders or photographers this Friday morning.

Today i bumped into Dr. Ho Hua Chew, Vice-Chairman of the Conservation Committee of Nature Society walking the grounds to take count of the birds sighting here. He also played an important role in helping bird photographers in the identification of some birds.
