Birdwatching before New Year 2015

The last 3 days before the start of the New Year as been days which the weather was cloudy and downcast. It made walking outdoors great because of the lovely breeze but the prospects of rain and dark skies made bird watching really challenging. The last 3 days, i did some nature walks to Sungai Buloh, Bidadari and Tampines Echo Green. Below are some of the consolidated pictures of my nature trips in the tail end of 2014. Here's wishing everyone a blessed New Year 2015

Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserve 
The highlight of the trip is the sighting of 3 different estuarine crocodile's in the Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserve.

I have been making regular trips to Bidadari. In some occasions you can see many birds there but in others, you be lucky to spot a few.
