Birdwatching in Bukit Brown (June 14,2015)

It's been awhile since i done any birdwatching in Bukit Brown. I have seen many birds but didn't capture much as i was spending time looking at tombstones ! I chose Sunday morning to catch up on some birdwatching but it wasn't the best day all for it because of the light rain and overcast sky making it real challenging to capture good photos.

Long story short, it wasn't a great outing but neverthless, i thought of sharing over here.

Works on the 8 lane highway is progressing and Hill 2 which to me one of the most prettiest hill is bulldozed and the gravestones totally flattened.  This sight brought back memories of my many trips to Hill 2 which inspired me to write ode to Bukit Brown in 2013 in which i covered some of the affected tombs in Hill 2 prior to exhumation now gone forever.

I also managed to document an exhumation process that took place in Hill 2 of Bukit Brown.
